I haven’t worked on this little top for ages so decided to add another blossom to it with the surrounding green path last night. That’s a dime on top of one of the little hexagons to give an idea of size. Each side of the hexagons finishes at half an inch.
I initially printed a few thousand of these small hexagons, almost all on 5″ charms, thinking I’d make the Insanity quilt seen here. I quickly decided I didn’t want to make that quilt and now have all these tiny hexagons. While I’ve started the little top shown above, I know that is going to end up as a small doll’s quilt. I’ll use half and quarter hexagons around the outer edges so that I have straight outer edges to the little quilt.
As long as I finger press these as I go, it’s very simple to press the top. I do press after I add each blossom.
More of the blossoms are ready and I have enough of the green surrounding hexagons printed to surround these plus a few more. Once that’s done I’ll assess if I want to make the little top any larger.
Our forecast for the weekend is fabulous — sunny and highs of 7 Celsius both days. The whole week has been wonderful with sunny days that have been relatively mild, considering it’s early March.
