Spring Hexagons

I haven’t worked with hexagons for quite a while.  Yesterday, I saw this post on Barbara Brackman’s blog and it reminded me of this grouping of hexagons from an Inklingo swap that I had set aside as I love the fresh, spring colours.    I think the windy conditions and snow that has been falling for the past 18 hours or so may have something to do with the appeal these have right now.

Because the hexagons templates were all printed on the backs of the fabric using one of the Inklingo hexagon collections, as you can see in the picture below, there’s no basting over paper or whip stitching involved at all.  Just a lovely running stitch and the flowers can be put together in no time.  I think this weekend, as well as trying out a few other ideas that I’m anxious to try, I’ll spend some time making a few of the flowers and pick out a background fabric.

We’ve been glued to the Olympics now for two weeks and have seen some marvelous competitions, but I don’t think anything can come close to watching Joannie Rochette’s skate last night.  I’m so glad she won a medal.

One of the things I plan on doing this weekend is to move my blog posts from the previous blog over.  Hopefully by Monday most, if not all, of them will have found their way here.

The cats know how to  deal with snowy, windy days.  Lester curled up in a kitty bed.

While Smudge found a comfortable spot on the couch.

  1. Those are going to be really sweet hexagons. The fabric is soft and lovely. They had predicted lots of snow for us this week, but I think we have lucked out and it is missing us to the south again.


  2. Spring colours are exactely what I need: the sky is grey and the weather rainy and windy.
    I love the look of your new blog: the quilt in yoru banner is beautiful. A big hello to my furry friends.


  3. Had to laugh — both your old and new blogs are in my reader and I went to the old one first. Immediately, I thought, “Where are the cats?!?!” Glad to see them here. Enjoy your springlike fabrics.


  4. Oh lordy bee that link to B.B.’s post is soooo dangerous. Hee! Love these sweet babies my friend. Love them to bits. I’m loving this new photo of Lester, too. Don’t be surprised if he visits LeeHaven. You know how I am. My crew loves company…


  5. I too loved the Barbra B blog post but it reminded me that I don’t want to do hexes again any time soon! LOL
    I was surprised to have you switching to a new blog but glad you have the link there so I don’t miss all of the wonderful posts you do.


  6. Those colors are sooo sweet, Cathi. They remind me of Easter candies. What is me and food lately?! Hahaha.

    I just want to drop by and see that your move was successful! 🙂

    I like the email subscription feature….. I don’t think I knew WordPress offers that feature.
