Hexagons Sewn: 141
Hexagon Papers: 248
The Plan: Unknown
For whatever reason, I'm really enjoying the process of sewing these little shapes. My husband thinks I've gone bonkers in this late pregnancy brain of mine, but I think it has a lot to do with the ability to put my swollen feet up and still get sewing done. Unfortunately, sitting at a sewing machine for too long causes all sorts of aches, pains and swellings to happen in my body right now, so I'm focusing on hexagons for the time being.
I have no idea what I'm going to end up with after all this. I don't even know if I'll carry on after the baby is born, to be honest. I have a feeling that nursing a baby and sewing with a needle and thread are two activities that won't mesh very well! I don't even know how many hexagons I would need in order to make a decent sized quilt. I should figure that one out, because I'm sure it's going to be more than 400 or so!
I love that it takes so little fabric to piece together a few hexagons. I have lots of little scraps that I'm hanging onto to teach my daughter how to stitch, and have been able to skim off the top of that pile a bit to add to my collection.
Here's something weird about me: If I have a bunch of the same fabric for hexagons (if you look closely, I have repeats of up to 8 at a time), I have to give myself a break from sewing the same kind of hexagons too many times in a row. Like, three or four of the same fabric in a row, max. I then have to mix it up with something else, to fend off fabric fatigue or something. See? Weird.
