Design Wall Monday - 1/27/14

It turned out I wasn't home much this weekend and when I was home it was pretty much about the hexies...for lack of deciding what else to work on...

I'm still plodding along on my twisted hexies. I'm at a point where I need to join up some of these rosettes to free up half hexie papers to make more rosettes. In reality, I bought more papers but I want to get this batch joined up to see how many more rosettes I need to make a bed sized quilt. I do hope it's a decent amount or I'll have a lot of fussy cut batiks in a box. LOL.


I also started prepping for the 2 weekend retreats run by our LQS next month. I'll be helping/sewing at both the retreats and the store but I have to have projects to work on!


I started by cutting the rest of the 288 diamonds I'll need for the tree skirt that I'm making. Took a little longer than I felt like pending yesterday but it's done and now I can just keep basting. I think I have a whole dozen diamonds basted so far = only 276 more to go!


I'm pretty sure, between the twisted hexies and the diamonds, I'll have plenty of hexies to work on for the retreats and beyond...

cutting is the worst part isn`t it but then sewing them is so relaxing. I cut all my papers too, use thin card and find I can reuse it a few times, have started getting a bit lazy and I know it wastes a bit of fabric but do not cut hexie fabric but square instead, am I naughty?Have a lovely retreat and I am sure fun too

I'm with Margaret in that cutting is the worst part. I enjoy basting because it is a nice mindless activity but the best part is sewing the patches together. It is so exciting to see the blocks develop under my fingers! It certainly looks like you have enough patches cut to keep you busy for a little bit!
