My hexagon adventures!!
Here is one flower I made out of 1/4" hexagons! Wow, that was hard.
Am I going to make a quilt out of those?? Not in the near future.
I am however, working on one with 1" hexies and am really enjoying it.
Never thought I would like doing all this handwork, but it is really relaxing and
something I can take anywhere. I even got some of the girls at work
hooked on it too (and some of them don't even sew - well they do now!).
Back view of one of my favorite hexies out of favorite fabrics, Flea Market Fancy and Happy. I don't sew through the papers just baste around the edges and then I don't have to remove the basting - ever!
A month or two ago and then now....
Here are some of my favorite flowers so far...some Central Park fabrics...
A little sparkle and some Sunkissed in there too and I think I see some Katie Jump Rope!
And some Java made by my friend Melanie who never sewn before!
She has made a lot of these hexagons for me!
My quilt has become a friendship quilt too, as I have shown friends how to do it, they have made blocks for me and now some of them are starting their own, so I made a block or two for them. It is nice to look at them and remember who made that one, or who picked out that flower combination. That is a lot of what I love about quilting, the friendships, the bonding, the laughter. You all know what I am talking about.
