Help for Hexies
Actually it is Help for Hexie-alics with SARAH, but I need help with this one for sure before I get too much further. Not sure how to set these or where I am going with them. I am using a layer cake and pull one blue, beige, and white from the cake - so I could logically make 42 large rosettes. BUT, I want to set them so they just 'run' amongst themselves. Does that make sense?
Think I need to get the graph paper out for this one and play a little.
I have two more baskets prepped - the red and green flowers - to work on for Slow Sunday Stitching. There will be 18 basket blocks, so I am working this one slow. Then the patchwork part gets to be played with which will go fast. Then it will be a slow project again as I want to hand quilt this one. A quilt that will take me back to my 'roots'.
Today I am Thankful for stitching projects that help me reflect back into my heritage - handwork that my great gran and aunties did so beautifully.
