I know what you mean Amanda, I cannot imagine stitching every day for over a year.  I like to work on more than one project at a time anyway or I get bored.

Yes, I will not be attempting that one, either, Pat! I loved looking at it, but cannot imagine devoting that much time to it.

Guess I will give that one a miss!

She says the original was 72", or 6 feet -- I am guessing that means across?  I wouldn't think that would be one side.   And at 3/4", yes, that would be over twice the size - massive ....

I don't think I would want to go smaller than 3/4" hexies, have used them before and they were OK.  If you made Dear Prudence with 3/4" hexies I reckon the quilt would come out a little over twice the size.  I don't know how large the original is, does anyone else?

I would think you could use larger hexies and just end up with a larger quilt at the end.

Wow, the Dear Prudence quilt is awesome Patricia! Thanks for sharing the link. I have a 3/4" hexie project and that is probably as small as I would want to work with. Good luck on your project share photos if you would like, I am sure we all would love to see them!

I am in the very early stages of a postage-stamp hexie quilt, using 3/4" hexies.  I did a 1"-squares postage stamp already, and thought the same look in hexie would be fun.  The hexies with 3/4"-inch sides are "about" the same as a 1"-square.  Perhaps I should cope with this first!  ;-)

Sorry, it should have read inch hexies, not ninch hexies!!

Comment by Pat B/UK on August 6, 2015 at 11:57am

I'm not sure that I could cope with anything smaller than half an inch, that size would make the quilt considerably larger.  My preference is forninch hexies, I can handle those easily.
