I fought the Hexagons as long as I could.
When knitsnquilts wrote about her lovely Quilt-As-You-Go hexagons back in July,
I was tempted to join the ‘hexi-harem’ then, but I fought the urge. But then, I began seeing hexagons EVERYWHERE.
It seemed the little, pretty, multi-sided papers were all around me.
If I wasn’t seeing paper hexagons, I was seeing them tiled on walls and floors and THEN
in that Swedish furniture store that uses hexagon shaped tools to fit hexagon hardware!
Back to that in a moment…..
My stitching friendship group had produced two beautiful versions of Anne Sommerlad’s Hanazono quilt. This quilt is made of 25 blocks, each using hexagons as flowers. After getting this pattern, I began to ‘see’ hexagons in every piece of fabric I owned.
So far I have finished 2 blocks.
I am doing the appliqué and joining of hexagons with the fine Aurifil Mako 50wt thread.
I am doing the embroidered stems with gorgeous Aurifil Mako 12wt thread.
And then I saw this in that Swedish Furniture Store.
It will be displayed in my sewing room…
