Lake Effect, one hexie at a time, is on its way to becoming a reality. I have now stitched for two Friday sessions with the Frankfort Girls, and I like the rhythm that I get into when I am focused on it. Once I have progressed a good bit more on it, I can see myself becoming a bit obsessed. Slow start for now, though.
Does it look like water to you? I have not yet added any red, but the original Minick and Simpson quilt includes it. I think the red I picked might be too intense. As I study theirs, I think I might need to tone mine down some.
Have you seen my project tub yet? I can't remember that I have shared this. I have roughly 550-600 hexies prepped here.
This second picture shows it a bit more clearly. Do the reds look too intense? If those few hexies are interspersed throughout the quilt, will it look okay? I know I should just go with it, but I don't want to do all this work and later regret that my reds are too overpowering.
Well, that's all for today. I am linking up with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. She has added a photo challenge involving hoops. So I will go back to an oldie and share it here, just to keep with her theme.
Back in late 2016 I finished Erin's Diamonds in this hoop. I had hand quilted this giant quilt on Grandma's old quilt frame, and used the hoop to do the edges. I still can't believe I made this quilt. Erin finally got to take ownership of it right before the end of December 2016, and she loves it.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
