I didn't take a lot of photos of my work then, but I think you can see the variety in my hexagons in this closeup.
I let it live in my sewing room for a while as a UFO. A long while. I didn't want to make any more blocks so I added borders to make it bigger (68" by 98"), hand quilted it (heavily!), finished it in 2004, and called it "Tropical Jazz". I really love this quilt. So does my sister. She called it "Barb's quilt" from the minute she saw it..
"Tropical Jazz" was juried into The Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in 2006, and since my BFF lives near Phillie she got to see it on display and even sent me photos!
In 2007 I entered it in the Circle in the Square Quilt Guild's exhibit "Quintessential Quilt", and it won 2nd place in their Large Quilts-Innovative category.
Because it was going onto the guest bed it needed a companion quilt to hang over it on the wall. I made a center block for a Round Robin .....
..... sent it off, and the rest was added by quilty friends so that it finished at 55" by 55". I hand quilted it, named it "Tropical Sunset", and put it on the wall. You may have seen it in this blog entry about Round Robins. (Barb decided this was her quilt, too!)
By 2011 I was just a little tired of Barb calling these her quilts every time she was at my house. I decided she was right and gave them to her. Not really. I decided because I love her I wanted her to have them. To say she was surprised is an understatement.
Well, I guess I had more photos than I thought I did! I hope I didn't overwhelm you, or worse, bore you with them all. If I did don't tell me. I had fun reliving it!
