It's all in the bag


Hello, dear readers!

It's finally raining after being super cloudy all day.  
It was a kind of humbug day.  LOL
I managed to get a few more hexies on this quilt in the making.  (Very long, long, long process...LOL)
There are soooooo many hexagons.



And wouldn't you know it, I found another bag (of stuff)....LOLOL.
Ah, me.  I had to play with it for a while.  This one is making me nuts. 
 It's going to be a scrap hexie. Some time in the future, maybe, yup.

Think I may put it back in the bag for now.


Until later...

Hexagon Friday

Hello, dear readers !

Well, I've been eyeing the Accuquilt.  Have you seen this yet?  I was thinking of buying one but it's a little way out of my budget.  I would have to win one. LOL

Okay, so how to do this....
I need lots of hexies for a quilt and I have the templates for cutting the fabric and English paper pieces.  So what I tried was to take the template and draw out as many that would fit on one page of regular paper.  Okay this worked!  It's not perfect so this was only a test because I wanted to know if it would work.


Okay, then tried ironing the fabric on to the freezer paper and ran it through the printer!  So I had 12 hexies on fabric and then sliced and diced.  It took all but 5 minutes.
Having fun!


Until later...
