For a while now I have been wanting to do some little patchwork hexagon handsewing. So on New Years Eve(while sitting in and watching Take That on TV!) I began this little project for myself. The tacking is still in (and there's a loose thread there), but here is a bit of it.
I was going to make a dolls quilt for one of the children, but the pieces are very little (smaller than an inch across) so it is going to be very labour intensive for an item that might get dragged about and left out in the garden, and I am also not sure whether the tiny seam allowance would stand up to too much play. I haven't quite decided what it will be yet, maybe a cover for a new diary or notebook, or perhaps just to frame and put on the wall.
I like the back, it shows all the work involved, especially the paper piecing that I havn't really done before (with excellent triangle graph paper from here). At the moment I am just going round randomly, adding hexagons to one side then the next, and I will stop when I am done. Any other ideas what it might become?
