The weather has been nice, – in fact more than nice: really, really hot for these parts of the world.
That is when I pull out my ongoing hexagon project and sit in the shade, cutting, basting and sewing.
When making the shorts shown in the previous post, I ended up with a lot of odd shaped remnants, perfect for cutting up into hexagons. They have all been basted, along with a few other remnant pieces laying around my sewing area.
A few have been made into flowers, with a few background pieces added, ready to be attached to the growing top.
I am starting to think that this will become a small throw for the sofa. It is wide enough by now, but has only a third of the desired height, so I will need to add about a hundred new flower blocks, plus some half blocks to make the edges even.
I see I will need a lot of fine weather to finish this one 🙂 🙂 Bring it on!
