Favorite Things Hexies

This week I added purple (violet?) favorite things to my pile of hexies.

I also added some green favorite things. Most of what I found in my green stash involved shamrocks. Can you tell I'm of Irish ancestry? I'm not completely taken with my green favorites.

..and here is where I am so far. I have orange and yellow left to do then I will really put it all together. I'm going around the multicolored middle with the colors of the rainbow. I will probably add more multicolor items in the middle and try to keep the lighter colors to the outside so not only will it go dark to light all around but the colors of the rainbow will be circling around - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet.  And these are all my favorite things. And, it's definitely going to be a lap quilt of the wash and wear type, but I haven't decided if I will emboider some seams ala crazy quilt style. 

Then I can sit around all winter surrounded by my favorite things and stay warm in my house heated only by wood.
