It has been a joy to start sewing my new hexie quilt. The colours are a delight to the eyes and the 1" hexies work so well for these fabrics. Seven flowers have been completed this week. I tend to use more stitches per inch than with my larger paper pieces used in Peaceful Night.
There are more photos of these flowers on my flickr photostream. I had wanted to share them here but between issues with blogger's photo auto-enhance and the current difficulties many are experiencing when attempting to transferring images from flickr to blogger, it just isn't happening (despite many, many attempts last night).
I have started a new set on flickr just for photos of this quilt which I have named "Fresh Fields" to make it really easy to find them and for me to add more photos of progress as it happens.
I have been cutting the hexies using a quilting ruler and rotary cutter. Taping the hexagonal cutting template (which came free with my papers) to the quilting ruler has made the task quick and easy.
The little scrap triangles which remain after cutting are too pretty to throw away, these have been kept for another mini project or for my children to use in creating artwork.
Sharing at WIP Wednesday.
