My Dutch UFO

This is currently my oldest UFO. I cut my hexies from fabrics I purchased on a visit to Amsterdam in 1999. I think I started this in 1999 or 2000. I finally got this far about five years ago.

But it was long and narrow and I could never figure out how to fix it. Fast forward to January of this year, and I decided to take it all apart and rework it. I got this far and stopped.

I needed a handwork project for a trip and pulled this out last weekend. I’m now at this point.

Progress! I want this finished this year! We shall see how much I get done while visiting my mom this week.

Have a great day!

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Wonderful that you figured out how to make it work for you. I too have a hexi in the works, and it has been in time out for long enough. I recently got one section pieced to another large section, and now have the papers freed up to baste over the next set to get it going again. We (you and I) will struggle on with this!

    Both are so nice. These EPP jobs take a long time. It doesn’t help that I lose track of mine at times and have to go on a search. How your first one sparkles!
