A few months ago we decided that a couple of very special people would be receiving quilts for Christmas and both of these two lovely ladies independently said that blue was their favourite colour. We settled on Papillon from Moda, but only the blue colour way (not the coral fabrics). It'a really delicate duck-egg type blue, combined with light browns and splashes or gorgeous corally red. My local quilt shop cut me two custom jelly rolls of just the blues (underneath) and creams (on top).

And I picked a quilt design from a Pat and Nicky Lintott Jellyroll book which results in Hexagons.

I got the fabric, and put it carefully in the cupboard for later in the year. Last night I had a dream. It was Christmas Eve and I hadn't finished the quilts! So tonight when I got home from work, I pulled out the fabric and I have made a start.

And I will be adding these two quilts to my finish along list when I post it later this week - these two quilts WILL be finished in time for Christmas!

It's good to start things early, specially when they are to do with Christmas! =D

Starting early is always a great idea, I love the fabrics and the pattern. Have fun and I look forward to seeing them grow. Hugs

Oh they are so pretty! Can't believe you're so organized - great work :o)

I'm also working from the same book, making the Twisted braid quilt. This is the first time I've used a jelly roll, though have seen them around for quite a while. I hope your hexi quilt is going well.
