I learned how to make these over a year ago when I started down this path of hoarding fabric and drooling over textiles. These are made from scraps with a piece of batting in the middle and then muslin for the backing. So it's actually a QAUG (quilt-as-you-go) project. I STILL don't have my sewing machine back and I needed something to stitch somehow, some way, and then I remembered these little lovelies just waiting to be brought back out into the light of day, and I'm glad I did. This quilt is very portable. Its traveled with me to FL, to doctor's offices, cookouts, coffee shops, etc. Who knows how long it will take to be bed-sized (I used to know how many it would take to fit on a twin, but that info is long gone from my pea brain). The hexies are approximately 6 inches across.
So hopefully my sewing machine will be back home soon! I'm using my sweet niece's Pfaff (sp?) and it's not too swift, let me tell you! (Or maybe it's the user) But it's driving me nuts. Then again, on the Gardens of India quilt, I sewed the entire binding on before I realized that it was on the wrong side! So out came Jack (the ripper) and he had a ball riiiiiiiping that right off. So a lot of my frustration is my own doing, I will admit.
I hope you are having some sewing fun and progress this week - whatcha all been up to?
