I found this new mystery through one of the Facebook Quilt groups I’m following. It is a quilt made of hexagons (hexies) and it will take approx. one year to sew.
If you use 1 inch hexies you’ll probably end up with a bed size quilt (approx. 150 x 200 cm / 60 x 78 inches).
The pattern is free if you register at this website, participants will receive a weekly e-mail with instructions (Dutch only, but with clear pictures).
You will be able to subscribe until the designer (Anne Liefs / Annelie Dikland) decides to close the registration period.
After registering, you receive the first weekly e-mail. Exactly 24 hour later, you’ll receive the next, and the others follow one by one every hour – until you are caught up.
In one of the e-mails you also receive the link to become member of a restricted Facebook group to share your progress – and of course enjoy all the other beautiful versions.
This is where I was at the end of January:
Two weeks later I was at this point:
I decided that the 1”hexies were too big for my taste so I purchased a Fiskars ¾” hexagon punch at the crafts exhibition in the Netherlands (handwerkbeurs Zwolle).
That was a fun day: I met Annelie, the designer of this Mystery! No pictures from that day though, I was too busy shopping ;-)
Anyway, I had to start all over again.
In the last weeks of February, I managed to catch up all the way. It really is a mystery: instead of adding rows or parts to the large piece, we now are making all kinds of smaller sets.
This is getting exciting!
