In the mean time, I couldn't not make hexagons! I was so excited to be starting another hexagon project, that I just had to make some while I waited to start the "real project". This is what I've managed so far...
180 x 1.25inch sided hexagons made out of Judie Rothermel civil war reproduction fabrics! Once I started, I just couldn't stop. So, change of plans. I've ordered 10 more fat quarters of the Judie Rothermel fabrics from Quiltsmith's and I'm going to save the Rouenneries and freezer paper templates for the next project. Crazy, I know. This just seems to be how I do things. :-)
I've also managed to finish the hexagon quilt top I have been working on for my unborn daughter (due this Saturday!) for the past 14 months. It's all ready to be quilted. What do you think??
I'm so chuffed.
