I've caught the Hexagon bug !

After much resistance, I have finally caught the bug ! The Hexagon bug. I have been busy making these little darlings at night while sitting relaxing at night in front of the telly. I love how you can make the fabrics come alive and take on a whole new look. It gives a new meaning to stripes and linear fabrics.. I am looking at fabric a whole new way and find there are more fabrics that I just have to have haha all I see is how it would look great in a hexagon. Is that sad....... no not at all ! I have a master plan for my Hexagon quilt, the color scheme is muted ( of course ) using reproduction fabrics I have had in my stash for quite a long time now. I also think it would be nice to add some applique somewhere in the quilt top. Let's wait and see how it goes. Take a look at my progress.

    Not surprised the bug is VERY Contagious!
    I’ve moved on from the paper templates and am now using Inklingo which I love. Prints on the back of the fabric – ink washes out, and stitch with a running stitch. No stitches showing on the front, no glue – Its great.
    Takes less than half the time.
    Off to Sydney tomorrow to a class with Kathy Doughty! Yay!!
