I'm showing some more hexie blocks today. This is more exciting than showing you spread sheets, accounting paperwork or printed patterns. That's what I've been doing for the last few days. BORING!
I group them together and make three blocks at a time. Don't they look like first place ribbons? In my book, they are all winners.
You can see that I usually just key off of the center and introduce similar colors.
But not always. I have to get in some plaids and polka dots.
I think I'm about 1/10th of the way finished since I think it's going to take about 200 of these little babies to make a queen size quilt. If I stopped now, I'd have a nice table runner. But I can't stop making them.....I'm totally out of control when it comes to working on this old fashioned quilt.
I've discovered that stripes work best on the third row.
Not in the first row.
I may be a bit quiet for the next few days. My daughter in law isn't feeling well, and we'll be the taxi service for the grand kids, doctor visits, and anything else she needs like a nice home-cooked meal. But don't worry, I am going to carve out some time to make more blocks!
