After joining The Great Hexagon Quiltalong (see sidebar) last week, I decided to start a hexagon quilt. First task was to find the green Rubbermaid box that I always kept the cut hexagons in. I prefer 5 inch hexagons. Then I discovered that you could make a diamond shape with them...kind of like a "Trip around the World" quilt. I have put only a few rows on this quilt, and am using blacks and tans. It is hard for me to hand piece them, so I tried to do a few on the machine. Both ways work. Like I really need "another" project to work on?! Click on the button on the sidebar and it will take you to the new hexie blog. If you like hexie quilts, it's worth taking a look at!
