Mystery Quilt 2018-2 - February #WinterseHexjes

Mystery Quilt 2018-2 - February #WinterseHexjes


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.

The 1” hexies will be used to make a quilted bag for the mystery quilt. If I repeat the center block pattern of the 1” hexies, they will add up to a large enough bag.

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!

We doen elke week een stukje. Als ik ervoor ga zitten is dat stukje in twee avonden klaar. En als je dat een heel jaar volhoudt is het resultaat een hele mooie lap waar je leuke dingen mee kunt doen 😄
