I was so busy yesterday. I needed more hexagons prepped. Each of the Patchwork of the Crosses blocks takes 48 – 90 degree hexagons – that is a lot of hexies to prepare! But the end result is satisfying.
Finished one and have the next one laid out with some new colors in it. I have 27 more of these to make I believe.
The finished one:
The next up to bat:
A small pieced hexagon finished on Thursday that I didn’t get pressed until last night to put in the box with the others:
How many of you are guilty of buying quilt books only to look through them, put them on the shelve, and then forget about them until someone mentions them on their blog? Surely some of you out there do the same as I! Someone mentioned a couple days ago on their blog – this book - I’m sorry I don’t remember who?
and said something about pieced hexagons – got me to thinking – that book sure looked familiar but I had totally not remembered anything about it – how sad – I bought the book and forgot about it. Lots and lots of information in it about hexagons – but you know what – I might have forgotten about it because it barely mentions anything about doing them by hand!! It even suggest that you machine piece English Paper Piecing!!! tell me it isn’t just me that thinks that is just plain wrong Now I know it is possible to do hexagons by machine but really you very rarely hear of anyone doing small hexies by machine – big ones yes you do hear that – but not small ones. I got the book out last night to look through it and maybe that was why I forgot about the book – or maybe I had bought several others at the same time and then got busy on something else and the book got put on the shelf and I forgot about it!! I will leave it on the coffee table for awhile and go through it several times – it has a lot of hexie information in it – I need to read it – even though I do them by hand
How do you keep up with your books – do you read them and remember them or do you have a bad memory like me and forget them. Do you have so many that you have to occasionally look at your book shelf of quilt books, open them up in order to remember what they are about?
