baby, it's cold outside...



but it's time for a quick frosty january photoshoot:

the finished top is 52" * 74"

all the 2" paper hexagons are out,

time to think about a back...


and a good name, too. If you can think of something suitable, please share it with me.

Happy to stay inside, today. Wish all of you a great week!

Åååå! Dette var kjempelekkert. Holder på med et stort teppe jeg også med sekskanter, men er ikke kommet så langt nei. Gleder meg til å se hva du gjør videre med det.

That is a lot of hexagons, love the arrangement of them. The quilt is beautiful. How about "Coffee with Milk" Hope things warm up there.

What an accomplishment!! It's beautiful. Reminds me of a honeycomb with the colors and arrangement you choose. Can't wait to see more!

So beautiful Marit! I love the soft aquas in with the toffee colours, sorry no names but lots of admiration

Oh, it looks so cozy, like looking at crisp snow out the window, while sipping on warm, sweet drinks inside. I would be tempted to use wool batting and a flannel back.
