We have all been a bit under the weather in our house this last week or so as winter approaches. But I have been getting into the sewing room in the evenings and I have been doing hexagon log cabins. I have now done 18.
I am thinking about how to lay them out and how to finish the quilt. I don't want to make any more hexagon log cabins really, so I thought I would do a large border of scrappy trips. Scrappy trips are blocks of squares, where there are several fabrics used the squares are in diagonal lines. I used this technique for my dolls blanket here.
So I thought I would arrange them like this and add triangles in to make them into diamonds and then sew them together. Then I think I will do more triangles to fill up the odd spaces and then a border of squares. It's a plan.
Those are some of my favourite hexagons. I think it is going to be a very pink quilt...
