It was inevitable – the minute I said I was going to dedicate stitching time to those three quilt tops, a tiny distraction came along. And I do mean tiny. This little hexagon flower was made with the Inklingo .375″ hexagons. Very quick to stitch as each seam is done in one load of stitches on the needle. I think it took longer to print the shapes on fabric and cut them out than it did to stitch the little flower. They were one of four new Inklingo hexagon collections released yesterday – .375″, .75″, 1.5″ and 2.25″ hexagons. Of course I had to play with the smallest of the four.
Seams graded and tiny flower pressed. As I typed that sentence I immediately thought of a fun setting for these tiny flowers. And that one will be a very small quilt – made up of no more than 4 or 5 of these miniature flowers. And I think it will be done very, very quickly. Maybe even this weekend. I thought I’d do just the one flower but now that this idea has taken hold, I have a feeling I won’t stop until it’s finished. Perhaps the tiny distraction has grown to become a small distraction.
I’ve made flowers with the .25″, now the .375″ and the .50″ hexagons – shown here in that order. I’ve also made ones with the 1″, 1.5″ and 2″ hexagons. Of those, I think the .375″ may just be my favourite.
Baxter’s still at the CNE, but took a break from the midway today to go to the food building and then to a quilt show. How I wish there was a real quilt show at the CNE. Then I might actually want to go. I don’t think I’ve been to the Ex, as we call it, in a few decades.
