WIP: more hexes

It's been a while since I did WIP Wednesday, so today I'll show you my beekeeper quilt progress.

Photobucket

There are now 14 Hexipuffs in the basket, or would be if I had a basket to put them in. It looks like nearly enough for a seat cushion, in case I abandon the blanket plan and settle for something a little smaller. I still love making the hexes, though, so I'm going to keep going! It's turning out rather garish - I may need to find some more neutrals to put in between the neon greens and pinks....

The next hexes I make will be striped, since I now have some scraps that aren't quite enough for an entire hex each.

  1. Since I first heard a seat cushion suggested I have become much much more interested in these hexi-puffs.

    It sounds MUCH more manageable.

  4. I don't think it's garish - once it's all done the louder colours might not speak so loudly. It's pretty!

  9. You know, I see those puffs and can't NOT think y'all are crazy for doing this. But crazy in a fantastic, wooly way, so it doesn't really matter ;)

  11. Yay, puffs! I know it's crazy, but I'm diving in too. I'm actually hosting a sock yarn mini-skein swap starting next week if you're looking to add to your supply! :)

  14. Your hexipuffs look great. I don't think it's garish. I like the bright colors. IF it were me I would add more pinks and greens to tie it together not more neutrals.
