I just have one thing to show today for Scrappy Saturday:
These are about half of the blue hexies that I've basted from the many scraps that I've been cutting. These are big, 2 inches on each side. And no, I did not cut hexagons! I just had squares (and to be honest, I got a little lazy and some of these are just pieces of fabric in no shape at all) and folded them around the paper hexies. Here's how they look on the back:
I'll trim the seam allowances as I stitch them together. The seam allowances won't be perfect, but cutting hexie shapes takes way more time than trimming away the seam allowances.
So, I'm not really sure what to do with these. Right now I think I might make a block of each color and then join them all together at the end. I don't think I want another month-to month project, and I'm not sure that I want blocks of hexies. Maybe I'll just mix them together and stitch them together randomly. I can't decide. Anyone have an opinion?
Okay, I just did the math and that's a lot of hexies. Probably breaking it up into blocks is the best idea, because otherwise I'm likely to be left with 500 loose hexies and no quilt, and that would be very sad!
Hope everyone is warm and dry this weekend. Stay in and sew! The snow has a way of melting eventually if you just leave it alone. . .
