I just noticed that my name is on the Half-Hexagon Quilt-Along list by Comfortstitching - and I think people are visiting to see some....so.....okay
As the title says, never did I think I would be interested in hexagons - sorry to anyone who lives and breathes English Piecing of Hexagons - but I shudder even as I type! I like the look once sewn but this is one lazy quilt-sewer here and the thought of pieces of cardboard to sew around bit by bit would drive me INSANE!!
Saying all that, I came across Cathy's wonderful blog Cabbage Quilts and her wonderful start to the Half-Hex Quilt-along and I felt inspired....visited Comfortstitching (also lovely!) and so let the Hexing begin!! This is definitely the cheat's way of Hexagon stitching (maybe some purists are turning in their grave/seat/paper-pieced-cardboard-pile) but I can relate to it and I am loving others' combinations of either liberty-sweet or modernly in-your-face!
I have a layer cake of Patisserie - which amazingly can cut into 2.5" strips and then chop up with the half-hex template - I say this now, but I haven't actually done anything. That's okay 'cos Aneela says 'no pressure, no rush' - exactly how I like it!!
