The Easter long weekend has been kind to my hexie flower making efforts so have something to show for month 1 of this project. My goal is 12 flowers a month so I will take just on a year to complete, fingers crossed!
I decided to try the glue method but living in the Northern suburbs of Perth city a quilting shop is at least 30kms away so tried the chain gangs of Spotlight & Textile Traders with no success. So decided why not call in the big guns & use a bottle of fabric glue, not as easy but so far so good though a lot messier & sticky on the fingers.
I love my AFL footy which is great for productivity now so this was the result of the Thursday night Footy Show viewing followed by the movie Inception. Lots of gluey hexies waiting to dry properly.
After watching a couple of movies last night, here's my first 12 flowers finished.
This is my first random stash quilt so the thought of putting all these different colours & values together is freaking me out a bit. So, when in doubt, procrastinate! I'll make up the blocks later & decided I need to do a lot more less bold choices to mellow things out a bit.
While watching the ANZAC footy match today I cut out another 13 flowers & in 2 hours when the Dockers Vs Doggies game starts I get back to glueing again.
Happy stitching (& glueing!)
