I needed a little crafty break the other day. Our property keeps me busy this time of year, and then longarm quilting has been keeping me busy when i’m not outside, so I haven’t been terribly creative lately. Sometimes I just need to sit and mindlessly craft. Hexagons seemed like the perfect solution. I spotted this perfectly modern hexagon mini in my Pinterest feed (link in the sidebar) a few weeks ago and just knew I was going to have to make it. Go take a look so you understand the rest of what i’m talking about here.
…. waiting for you to go have a look …
Did you go see? Did you fall in love with it too? Of course you did!
I happened to have a jelly roll of the same fabrics Modern Handcraft (Nicole) used opened and in use, so I knew I could easily steal a few snippets from the ends for this project. I raided my solid scraps bin to even it out and got everything made to make the mini. I have it all laid out (the same as Nicole’s, because I loved the layout so much), glued on and it’s being quilted. Which will take me awhile. I am not a huge fan of quilting on my domestic, but for these tiny lines I think that’s the best route. I know that I didn’t glue everything perfectly straight, so loading it on the longarm would actually be less helpful in getting all of the straight stitches made through the centers of all the hexagons. I can fiddle better and have it look nicer on my domestic. Thank goodness for the walking foot! I’ll post an update as soon as I finish.
