I have not posted anything to my blog for some time. I have started an insane hexagon quilt and will document my progress......
This picture shows how much I have done so far.
I will explain the process - I downloaded a sheet of hexagons 3/4inch (5cm) from the internet - such a kind person to have made all the options available. It saves hours of having to draw them out onto a sheet.
I photocopied the page many times and then cut them out, (what a job!!). See the individual paper hexagons on the right just above the sheet. I then went through my stash of fabric and cut out a few of many shades, 2mm bigger than that paper. I then folded the fabric over the paper and stitched it together making sure the corners are sharp.
I then cut out six hexagons of fabric in each colour throughout my stash. Attached the fabric to the paper hexagons and to keep the sets together threaded them onto a long piece of cotton. See the sausage of hexagons above the random colours. I need a lot of white and green hexagons, so have done some of those too.
I have now started sewing the six matching hexagons together with a random colour in the centre to form a flower and will surround it with white and two green hexagons joining them.
I have thousands of hexagons to go to complete a quilt INSANITY!!!
