I’m a member of the SMQG which is a small group of enthusiastic modern quilters. We get together each month and each year we do a group project. Last year we made a huge hexie quilt which we entered into the annual state quilt guild show and then raffled to raise funds for a donation to the YWCA for young disadvantaged women. We managed to raise over $1000.00 in just under a month of selling tickets.
The quilt design was based on a rainbow colour scheme design from the book Hexa-Go-Go by Tacha Bruecher who kindly gave us permission to use the design for the group project.
I chose the warm orange palette – no surprises there – my first ever attempt at doing hexies is below. I was pleased at how they came together.
Here they are in situ – Sel did a great job on the quilting.
