DWMonday ~ Coffin Blocks

I cut a bunch more hexies for the quilt in progress that I showed yesterday. 

I threw a bunch up on the design wall, but they aren’t mixed up enough.


I pulled them down and put them in a basket to mix them up better. Then I’ll put them back up.

 I was asked how big these are. The finished length is just a bit over 5 inches.

Have a great day!

    This is going to be a great quilt! What fun fabrics you have used. Did you use a die cutter to cut all of the hexies?

  3. Looks like a wonderful start on an interesting quilt.

  4. I love these pieces but the name cracks me up!

    It looks great so far, Katy. I really like the shapes.

  7. Are you machine piecing these? That seems daunting to me. I love the scrappiness!

    Absolutely love your quilt on your design wall. What a lot of work! Looks like all individually cut out and an amazing amount of “y” seams!

    Such a fun set of fabrics. It’s going to be a very pretty scrappy quilt.

    I love these fabrics and colors Katy! They look really vintage, which is what I usually try to achieve. Is that really the name of the blocks? I would rather call them elongated hexagons, though.
