More Hexagons

Last year was a strange one for sewing. I made 3 medium to big quilt tops and finished the largest one and gifted it in May. After that I spent most of the summer and fall heading to visit my Dad in the hospital. There was lots of time to hand sew between car rides and sitting in the hospital. We followed that up with a visit with GeoDad's family at Christmas with another long car ride.
Project Seventy-Two grew a bunch in the last 6 months. I am now up to 12 whole blocks and 8 setting triangles. At 12 half-hexagons in each triangle and 72 in each full hexagon block the total is 960 (which makes me think I definitely have a problem and should be going to some sort of EPP support group).

In order to better manage my thread, needles, snips, papers and fabric while I was going up and down the highway I made a Sew Together Bag by Sew Demented and it works great. And I used some of my precious Ann Kelle hippo fabric and some Art Gallery Fabric Nature's elements left over from my wedding flowers. The whole bag makes me happy and is very functional for carting handsewing around.

Linking up with Sarah for Help for Hexieholics (The Hexie-support group I need)
Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!


  1. Both of your projects look great. A friend gave me a sew together bag for Christmas last year, and I love it!

  2. The projects are great but I am particularly impressed with your quilt - some of it looks like 3D


Comments are like chocolate, I can always have more.
