Hexagon Progress: hand piecing
You've seen this quilt before, but it was a layout photo with pieces put next to each other, not sewn together.
The latest photo is a view of how the pieces look like sewn together. Still using Oakshott fabrics. I am not sure if their hand-made fabrics will continue to be available. It looks like they may be cutting over to a machine-made process to create their colourshott fabrics.
The quilt is still quite small, but it's the start of something interesting.
I'm having fun taking the project around with me - working on it mostly during soccer games, piano lessons, and tennis practice.
Some of the parents look at me like I'm a little crazy for sewing on the go, and others of them come over and ask me what I'm making.
Without a lot of time to do creative work in the evenings a take-along project is probably the only thing to get any of my attention these days.
If you have a solution to finding more time in the day I'd love to hear it. I'm probably not the only one on planet Earth that would embrace a 25 hour day.
