Design Wall Monday
I have a hexagon update for you. I must admit that I never thought I would enjoy hand piecing, but I actually love it! I'm still slow, but I am getting faster at it!
I have 11 flowers sewn together. I will have navy blue between all the flowers. I laid the flowers out on a twin size sheet. It was originally going to be a throw, but looks like it is going to be a little bigger than a twin size sheet. After I get the top sewn together, I will measure it and decide whether or not I will add a border. I don't have a pattern, I'm just making it up as I go. First Pippi and Boots wanted to help me with the placements of the flowers.
Here I have eight flowers across the top and I would put eight across the bottom.
I think I want to put two flowers on each side of the panel also. This will make it wider than a twin size sheet.
This means I will have eight flowers on each side, two rows at the top and bottom of four each. If I counted it right, I have nine flowers left to make.
I have two more flower sets cut and ready to sew. I have also cut some red hexies and purple hexies, but I am not sure if the red hexies match? I bought a blue batik to cut some more hexies from. Should I make the last seven flowers out of the blue, red and purple, or just the blue and purple?
I have the red hexies between the blue and the panel. My goal is to be finished with the top by the end of June so that I can work on the hand quilting while on vacation in July.
Thank you for joining me today!
