I've mentioned a few times on my blog that I'm working on a hexagon quilt so I thought I would show how much I've gotten done.
Here are my hexagons before they are cut out. I they are about 2" hexagons.
I then cut them out carefully & pin them to the wrong side of the fabric.
Then comes the fun part of basting them. I don't baste through the paper as I don't want to have the extra step of taking out the basting later. I like the basting part except my thimble is to small. So I need to get a new thimble.
So now I have piles of hexagons basted on the fabric.
So there that is all my hexagons at the moment. They are from reclaimed fabric, donated scraps, and stuff I had on hand. My goal in doing this is to not buy any fabric new. I find that reclaiming fabric from pillow cases picked up at thrift stores great resource. I also discovered that you can buy scraps on ETSY reasonably priced so I'm going to check that out.
Now I need ideas. I don't want to do a flower quilt. I want to do more of a colour blocking idea. So all the blues together, red, green etc. More like a rainbow. However I'd like to start sewing some of the hexagons together, but should I wait until I have more? Should I get OCD about it & have a plan. Or should I just start grabbing blues & sewing them together? Keep all dark together? Mediums together? Lights together?
HELP!!!!! What would you do?
