Hexagon Quilt! It’s Not What You Think!

I love love love the look of hexagons! I’m an even bigger fan of their geometry! I’m quite the mathematician if you didn’t know! I love them, but I haven;t got the time or energy to do one of those exquisite paper pieced quilts! I love them to death, but paper piecing is not for me! I’m a little too rough and tumble when it comes to quilting for that. So I saw a table runner that had this same kind of general motif and I thought, “Well, hell. I can make a quilt from that idea!” So I did. I sat down, did the math figured out what my pieces should be and I cut away! Tell me what you think! I still have the bottom half to put on, but it is almost done! Wish me luck!

Still Stripping, or Should I Say Strip Piecing?

Well, I got the first set of pieces ironed and now I am running them through the machine again for the third strip. Hopefully I’ll iron them, and then start cutting the rail fence blocks. Although, I do work today, and my yard needs some work done so I won’t hold my breath! Wish me luck!

Strip Piecing Like A Boss!

I’ve been strip piecing for hours! Okay, maybe one hour, but still! Half way done though with 42 pieced strips, so 84 strips of fabric. Hhopefully tonight I’ll finish it up. The strip piecing that is. I don;t think I’ll start cutting squares for this rail fence quilt yet, but at least I should be able to iron them tonight. One can only hope! First I have to fins=d some new background noise to watch while I sew. I just finished the seasons of Haven on Netflix, and now I need something new! Any suggestions?
