Work In Progress Wednesday - Hexieaholic

I think I am now addicted to hexies.  I am a hexieaholic.  And I need a hexievention.  I finished up the rest of my hexie flowers as I was lounging on the sofa over the weekend recovering from my 20 mile run.......

Yeah.....I just had to casually slip it in there that I ran 20 miles on Saturday.  Anyway.....I was actually kind of sad when I finished my hexie flowers....I was not sad when I finished my 20 mile run....but I was sad when I finished my hexies.  Soooooo, it should come as no surprise that I decided to take my quilt in the all hexie direction instead of the applique direction.....
35 white hexies down.....only 88 to go!  Yup.....that's 123 white hexies needed to finish this little hexie quilt.  I can't even imagine the mind-numbing amount of hexies that would be required for a full size bed quilt!  Eeek!

I decided to replace the "loud" lavender and yellow hexie I made last week with the "quieter" new lavender and yellow hexie in the bottom left corner.  I think the rejected hexie will get over it, don't you?  And fortunately after I arranged....and rearranged....and rearranged.....and found the perfect layout.....I was smart enough to snap a photo before this happened.....

Seriously!  What is it with cats and quilts???!!!  If I'm not able to make anymore progress on this quilt before next Wednesday it's simply because I was too scared to move the cat!  Law #1 of Kittydom:  You may never disturb a contented cat!

Happy Sewing,
Jenny

That has happened many times with my cats!

I'm glad you opted for the white hexies - it's going to look great! And, yes, my cats always help with block placement!

Maybe the white hexies ARE the way to go. Maybe I should do the math and then decide...!!!!

Your hexies are gorgeous (as is your cat). The finished quilt will be well worth the effort.

oh what a helpful kitty :)

you could use the leftover hexie as a coaster on your table for your ice drink - if the doggies and kitters let you sit on your couch!

First I love your helper!
And your hexies are terrific!
