I bought a few bags of pre-cut solid color hexagons a few months ago. They were on sale, so I figured I would find some thing to do with them. I came across the quilt Mae’s Bouquet at Denyse Schmidt’s web site, and decided to make my own “bouquet”. The quilt in the picture is folded, so I don’t know if there are other “flowers” in it. I wanted to add a few more, as I had left over hexies. This top is being machine pieced, and it is going together quickly. I also found a few tutorials that helped me to figure out just how to piece them together. This one at Tall Grass Prairie Studio is very helpful. I had a chance to meet Jacquie Gering at Asilomar last year, she’s very nice! I’d like to take a class with her one of these days.
I still need about a hundred more white hexagons, the precut ones are 2 ½ inches on each side. I was hoping to use the Accuquilt cutter, but I don’t have that size die. I had to resort to painters tape on my JayBird Hex ‘n More ruler. It works pretty well, and I can cut up to four at a time.
I really need to get quilting, the tops are piling up! I didn’t get to the Boy Quilt this week, it should be done by now.
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.
