Easily Distracted

Because of various influences–a blogger friend who wrote about English paper piecing and the quilts of Lucy Boston (I ordered the book,) my BF, who took a class on English paper piecing, and so was talking about hexies, and a closet cleaning episode, where I discovered a treasure box filled with a lot of little hexies from a long forgotten project, I started putting some hexagons together.

The whole time I am working on these, I enjoy the project, but of course it goes slowly, so I wonder what I am doing and if it will end up as anything at all.

Sometimes you just have to try. And sometimes you have to give yourself permission to do “stupid sewing” that might not lead directly to anything, but might just be the inspiration you need for the Next. Great. Project. 🙂

  1. I treasure a slightly moth-eaten, beautiful hexigon quilt that was made by one of my great-grandmothers, so seeing your pattern made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. 🙂
