These little blocks have been going on forever, which is ok, I'm not in any rush to finish, it's not like we have a shortage of quilts in the house
I cut out the fabrics with the Sizzix 1.25" hexagon die, and I've got a stack of pre-cut 1" hexagon papers (although I also cut my own when I run out, using the 1" hexagon die).
Everything gets sorted and tidied into a little pouch that Aneela made for me a few years ago, it's been one of the most useful gifts I've ever had. I love that little pouch (she made me the sewing kit too, which I also use all the time).
I think I'll need around 80 ish flowers in total, for a decent sized quilt. That's a lot of hexagons (I'm not adding it up, it'll put me off)
The black borders/sashing goes on as I sew - 8 hexagons around each double ringed flower.
Except that one that I accidentally got carried away with and did the full ring. It's been annoying me, so I'll probably unpick that at some point, but there's no rush with that either. It's not like I'm anywhere near close enough to make the rows yet.
In all seriousness, it's been really nice to take a step back these past few weeks and reassess what really maters in life, and to spend more time with the husbeast. There's always a silver lining isn't there? My silver line is more hexagon shaped
