Waiting for Armageddon

Minnie hexagon quilt: QuiltBee
A bad ice storm has been raging south of us for much of the weekend and we are expecting it to land here later today (the rains have actually begun as I type) so it was a good day to spend inside, warm and dry, with Minnie.

You will recall that the pattern I'm working from shows four sets of four-diamond blocks bordered with a single colour...

...but I've been toying with just placing smaller four-diamond blocks and not doing the larger outline around 16 hexies. I bounced the idea off of Betty and she voted yes. Decision made.

So I've been playing with different layouts.

Funny, I thought that I had lots of four-diamond sets done up but there's only about eight or nine. Still, it's enough to get me started....M

Another hexie addict! Looks good. Funny how these just need to be laid out to decide on a design. Doing it on paper just seems confusing to me.

Hexie heaven! Your colors and how you have arranged everything is stunning. A perfect project while waiting for this historical snow...here in Wisconsin we got record breaking snowfalls - “Spring will be a little late this year.”
