One swap that I am sorry I missed out on is the Doll Quilt Swap. I've been eyeing it for a while and hesitated and now it's full. I had been really wanting to try out this method for a long time. John's mother actually gave us a full hexagon quilt that was made by my FIL's aunts. Well, I think by them anyway. Both sides of his family were quilters and my MIL has a whole bunch of the quilts. So, last night I wanted to do some crafting that didn't involve my sewing machine. I drew out a bunch of these templates on the back of a magazine. Then I hand basted the hexagons. I started sewing a few together and this is what I came up with. Actually, John came home from Outback last night only to find me sitting on our bed with these spread out trying to find the perfect arrangement. Ah, I'm just laughing at myself thinking about it.
This has become very addicting and I'm really enjoying the hand-sewing. I figure this will be a good craft for the car ride. Last time I went to NY I was itching to craft so badly, so I'm glad I'll have something to bring along.
Alright, me and my rotary cutter have a date. Hope my fingers don't fall off! Oh the things we'll do for fabric.
