So, back in September I was surfing the web (I know, always dangerous!) and came upon Missouri Star Company's video of making hexagon quilt as you go projects. I believe I asked someone to stop me but no....... you all encouraged me to start a new project instead! (see how I placed that blame away from myself!). I figured I'd wait for 'birthday monies' in November to order the Daisy and Grace templates...... a few of you mentioned you might want to join in on my 'rabbit hole' project.... cause I seem to be an enabler!
I was ordering something from Amazon... and well, there might have been anniversary money in September .... so I ended up ordering a similar template set that should work just fine for this project. I think it was about the same price but also included that 60 degree triangle shape that might come in handy for some other project. From what I can tell, it is slightly smaller than the Daisy and Grace templates. For me, the big hexagon measures 5 3/4 inches rather than 6 inches. It is going to work just fine for me!
Honestly, I'm not sure where this one will take me. I had purchased a couple of FQ bundles from Aldi a while ago for $5..... They are pretty blues and greys. I think I will start out with that and just play a bit and see what happens. This 'might' become a RSC project next year.... time will tell. I sure do have tons off scraps of warm and natural batting hanging around and this will be a great use for all those parts and pieces.
There may be a 'practice' piece of 7 hexagons in Christmas fabrics to make a hexagon 'candle mat' for the table. There are instructions on how to do them by machine but I'm tempted to do them by hand. I know, like I need another hand piecing project!
My original plan was to start this in November.... but as the kids are going back to in person school Monday... I might prep those 7 Christmas hexagons this weekend and pop them in the car with some thread, needle and scissors for the car line pickup next week and see what I am getting myself into.
Feel free to join along! It is always fun to pull people down that rabbit hole with me!
