Spring Stitching Club

It's been no secret that I have been loving the Wild Olive seasonal stitching clubs created by Mollie Johansen - it's been no different with Spring Stitching Club

I have really enjoyed piecing together the hexies and working slowly but surely over 13 weeks to finish up each season's stitching club project. 

This particular stitching club took over 200 hexies to complete. At one point I thought I would never finish, but I did. I couldn't believe how many paper hexies I pulled out of the back of the quilt piece. I knew there were a lot of them, I just hadn't realized how many there were until they were lumped together in a big pile. 

I kept the color scheme for this project very light, white, and bright. I knew it would be a large quilt once I added the top and bottom panels, but it turned out way larger than I thought. The longest place I had to hang this was behind the door. The sunlight was shining through the fabric in just a way that I really enjoyed. 

The quilt is in thirds, the center portion is made up of hexies, then two fabric panels on either end. I found this soft white fabric with pale purple, yellow, pink and blue dots. 

I currently have the fabric for the quilt back in the washer. Once I have it dried and pressed, I can finish the quilt and enjoy how this Spring Stitching Club ended. 

Do you have any projects you are finishing up?

This is so fresh and pretty! I'd love to get into quilting, but I find it daunting. Do you think hexes are a good first quilting project? I've resolved to finish up some long standing WIPs this year, but that doesn't stop me from looking for new projects ;)
