I was going to just cut all the pieces out for the next hexie diamond for Handful of Scraps and work on it later in the week and before you know it the evening was here and I was almost all the way done with the diamond! These little things are addictive. It was very hard to get the color to show up right for this one – the center is a very light lime green and it kept showing up as more of a white color – finally I got one to turn out although now that I look at it it looks yellow! trust me it is green.
Before I got started making the hexies I did cut the strips I need to square off the Final Frontier I just haven’t sat down at the machine to sew it. These are 3.5 inches so it will be 3 inches finished about after the binding is on maybe a little less. I had to press this fabric before I cut it and decided as I had the ironing board set up and the iron hot I would press the fabric needed for the next hexie diamond and that is what started the sewing yesterday. I just meant to press and cut the fabric needed! I had planned on sewing these border pieces in – maybe today? I am linking to Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts today and My Quilt Infatuation.
More work continues on Winter Wonderland and picked up here last night.
