Hexagon Quilt

Material

I really like this quilt made by Abigail Newbold. I like the colours and the big size of the hexagons. I'd like to have a longterm handsewing project like this going on in the background for all those moments when you are free to just sew a few things together. It's a bit of a way off on the old list of things to do but I just happened to be looking at Strawberry Fayre as I needed some yellow material for my new project and I saw these spectrum bundles they sell which seemed perfect, so here they are! Now I want to get started straight away!

I really love that quilt! I've searched to see if I can find any images which show more of it but can't find any - have you seen any? Definitely one to add to the growing list of things I'd like to make one day! I love the combination of tweedy fabrics and colour.
Looking forward to seeing your progress!

I did a search myself but didn't really find much. I can't quite imagine what the whole thing looks like so I'll have to fill in the blanks. They have lots of tailoring shops in SoHo near me so I might go and see if they have some scrap bins, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's costly material so I might just have to use normal grey cotton at the side. We'll see!

This quilt is gorgeous, I haven't got round to even starting a hexagon quilt yet. My wish list is getting too long!

There's always too much to do! You have started your star quilt which is more than I have done!
