Let's start 2014 off right with a little EPP. Last April I started these hexies as a little quilting project that I could take with me on a trip to Denmark. I chose blue because I never use blue. I don't think I've ever made a blue quilt. This project started without a plan, as some good quilts tend to do.
I was wondering what to do with these blue hexies when I saw a poster on the East River Ferry. The poster showed old photographs of a big boat dumping old subway cars into the water. Did you know that old subway cars are used to create artificial reefs? Well, now you do.
Looking at the posters, I thought back to the Titanic and how underwater photos of the decay were a pretty aqua color. But I was already several months into piecing the randomly blue hexies. So, now the plan is to make a 'solid' blue hexie quilt with some pretty aqua-colored decaying subway cars appliqued at the bottom.
It is taking forever! But it is almost the size of a yoga mat now.
