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.
