Deliberations







After much deliberation and opinion seeking, I've decided to go with all of these flowers. We were considering pulling out the brighter/deeper ones to give a more serene effect, but after already having removed all those with touches of navy last year, I was beginning to think I may never end up with a finish.

I really do like the brighter pieces as they add more 'bounce' to this Fresh Fields quilt. What do you think? Combining the work of the last few weeks with that of last year, I now have around 60 flowers. I'm aiming for 100+ before working on final placement and stitching together.

Oh my....my heart is going pitty pat at the sight of all your hexie gorgeousness, Karen. The colours, both pale and brighter, are perfect together. This quilt is going to be a vision when finished!

This is Beautiful. The darker ones are just a tad darker and add a lot of interest. This is inspiring me to make a large hexie quilt. I've only done small projects with them. Continue on...we are waiting for your final project!

I think the deeper hues add depth and pop to the quilt. No need to take 'em out. :)

Lovely EPP! A flower garden is certainly on my quilting bucket list!

Anita Johnson said...

These are just beautiful...I love the photos almost as much as the quilt. I love the stacks, the fabrics, the color choices. Your photography is as beautiful as your handiwork.

Lynette said...

Karen, this is such a beautiful set! The colors together are so soothing and peaceful, without being boring. This will be yet another marvelous finish of yours.

Erin said...

Oh glad, the bright ones are a must! They're not dominating at all, goes so well.

Linda @ kokaquilts said...

Your hexis are very pretty & gentle! And the occasional bright one is wonderful, it just works!

Susan said...

Lovely as is, very pretty and fresh.

Carla said...

It's super gorgeous! Love everything about it

Gorgeous hexies and fabric choices. Nwhat size hexies? Xx

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

These are 1” hexies Sue - not too fiddly, not too large. (1” along each side). I have made a tentative start on some 3/4” hexies with organic fabric - rather cute.

DeborahGun said...

I love it with the touches of brightness - so beautiful :-)

Jeanne said...

Absolutely gorgeous new quilt you are making. Is that darling cupcake a pin cushion? It is so cute. The colors in this fabric are to die for. One of these days you are going to see my name buying a quilt from your ETSY shop.

Lisa Gordon said...

What a beautiful quilt this will be, Karen!
I just LOVE the colors you chose.

I do like the deeper aquas in the lower right as well as the pops of yellow green Lovely

Preeti said...

I like the brighter flowers because they add visual interest to an already beautiful piece!

Tu-Na Quilts said...

Very beautiful hexi flowers!!! I think the pops of brighter colors will add some interest and give the eye a place to settle. Not that it wouldn't be gorgeous without them but I'd vote to leave them in. I once made a quilt and left out the really bright greens and after having it quilted and stepping back it sure would have been nicer with them in. Karen

Keep 'em. Colors are beautiful. Will be just lovely when finished.
