I was in a mood today, couldn't get into anything creative.
Yesterday we opened our tent trailer and discovered that mice have been living in there and found a dead one, ick.
So, no camping this year. I will have to sanitize all the surfaces and anything not attached gets thrown out and replaced.
We do need a new canvas, so we will wait till next spring and replace everything then.
Today, I putted around the house and then decided to play with my scraps and try some hexagons.
I found the template online and using freezer paper, traced them onto that and cut them by hand.
I found the templates at Moxy Ideas. You can find the downloads on the right side and you can get different sizes; I used 1.5. ( If I had a Go cutter, it would have been easier;)
I sewed them by hand and they didn't come out too bad. I just tried to match up my points and eyeballed the 1/4 sewing mark, which I am sure I was off on, lol. This is a good project to use up your scraps and sew them until you have enough for a quilt. Now, how to make them into a quilt so they square off, I have no idea, guess I need to find a pattern. I am sure I have a pattern for them in one of my books. I was just too lazy to look through them.
The pink ones was my first try. I was using some of my prim scraps. The second ones are from my, too bright and fun pile, so maybe I will go with that theme, with dots and floral dot types.
