WIP Wednesday #23 - Honey Honey

This is a pattern I'm testing for Esther over at She will soon have the pattern available at her craftsy store here. - Honey Honey Quilt

I know I haven't posted in a whole week. I've been busy--luckily a lot of it was sewing time. I really buckled down and got to work on the Honey Honey project. I had a minor speed bump, but got it figured out with the help of Esther. I sewed up all my units and this is what I have so far.

I really love how the hexagons weave. This looks like it would be complicated, but it really is simple. Esther has put together a clean and easy pattern with lots of helps.  

I picked these colors because it was what I had in my stash. The more I look at this, the more I want to make it again only in different colors this time. I'm really thinking of doing it with a white background and then bright yellow and black hexagons. We'll see. Plus, I want to finish this one first.

It is so gorgeous! Exactly like I invisioned the pattern to look!
The colours are just wonderful! They POP right at you! You can not not look at it as it draws the eye right away !!! I will be "crossing the t's and dotting the i's" on the pattern tomorrow.

Thank you for all of your hard work and your great feedback!

Wonderful pattern, is it paper pieced?

Hi Karen,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. This pattern is paper pieced, which makes it so easy peasy. I'm excited to sew all my units together and get a finished top.

Hi Lorna,

Thanks for the compliment. I'm really liking it so far. And you are right, Esther does have some great ideas.

Hi Ester,

Thanks for the compliments. I really do love your pattern. It's so easy to make and packs such a punch. Thanks for letting me be a tester!

Allison said...

That's such a complicated-looking pattern! I love how precise paper piecing makes everything. Well done!

Hi Lucy,

Thank you! It does look like a complicated pattern, but it really is super simple. That is the beauty of paper piecing. It keeps it so precise and clean. (which is probably why I voted for paper piecing your blocks on your blog. *grin*)
