UFO Report - Hexagon Honeycomb

This is my Rainbow Scrap Challenge from last year, called "Hexagon Honeycomb". I loved piecing it in June of last year (click here to read about it). The commenters on that post gave me some great ideas for finishing the quilt, and then it sat percolating - a.k.a. hiding in the UFO closet!
May is yellow for the monthly Rainbow Challenge, and I was inspired to finish this scrappy yellow quilt and make it my UFO project for this month.
I pin basted and then machine quilted straight lines in the ditch, and I have to admit that I am just not loving it. It's just too flat and boring. So it's pinned on the design wall and I am again waiting for this quilt to tell me what is next?!?
I also should announce the winners of my two blog draws before I forget again!
Drum roll please...
winner of the Shop Hop giveaway (marking pins, charm pack and tumbler kit) is...lucky commenter #5 which is Mary
winner of the 100 blocks magazine is...lucky commenter #19 which is Swooze!
Thanks for playing along and I'll look for another giveaway when I go to Quilt Festival this week!


  1. These are so pretty...I might have to try it.

  2. Yea for Being Lucky #5! I'm the 5th child in my family and the baby, nice that the number was lucky for me this time. I e-mailed you my snail mail addy. Congrats on getting your UFO done. As usual, mine is still in the tote and it is the last week to work on it. Have fun at Quilt Festival- where do you get to go for it?

  3. Is your quilt telling you beads? A little bling might make it pop. Love the yellows, so happy.

  4. I will be interested to see what you come up with that will satisfy you for the quilting on this beautiful, sunny quilt. This is what always stumps me--how should I quilt this?

  5. I hope inspiration strikes just the right chord - this is such a happy quilt - love all the yellows!

  6. Yellow is my fave! You always come up with something great!

  7. Love the fabrics you've used. I can never think of the best way to quilt anything, which is why I let someone else do it!

  8. You could make petals around your wedge lines turning them into flowers. Or you could appliqué some garden critters around places. For example some bees or dragon flies and the occasional caterpillar. Leslie

  9. Love all the yellows, it will be interesting to see what the "quilt" wants done next!
