Footy Season....

The footy season has returned....and that also means the return of 'The Footy Quilt'...aka the hexagons!!! At the end of last season they were at a count of 1001 and looked like this........after a little bit of off-season training the count is up too.....1068 .... most of the off-season was spent putting it together in bits and pieces and and now it looks like this.....not a big difference...but lots of work!! I have tried to make one of the sides straight so I can start to see how big it is getting....it is layed out onour 6-seater dinning room table here....to give you some idea of how big it is. Hopefully with a few more months in front of the football it will get bigger and bigger!!

Do you need any specific colours? I'll cut you some squares when I'm doing the eye-spy blocks. 3.5", wasn't it?

And there you have it! I've never seen 'footy' and 'hexagon quilt' in the same sentence before :D

What a beauty!
I can certainly see how much work has gone into it. Ya to footy season..... Only for the sewing. I hate football.
It looks beautiful. Love the bright colours. Can you still see?

Gorgeous, so which footy season do you follow? AFL or NRL? Sitting down in front of the footy will be where I get all my applique done this year, hopefully. :)

Not enough BLUE in there! I think you should be reassessing your colour choice, especially when talking football.

Wow AJ, that looks fantastic! Brilliant idea for something to slow piece through. Do you know what you are making out of it? Seeing it on your table looks great, it'd make a great table cloth.

It needs more green Emma and yep 3.5 inches!

Hi AJ

I'd also be happy to give you some scraps. Is it just green that you are looking for?

I'm at work so I'm not sure if you'll get my email address so it's klomman@hotmail.com.
