Alternate title: Why I dislike hexagons
There came a point while working with this project when I said to my husband that I just wanted it to be over with. Then, I felt like I had a handle on things and enjoyed it. That lasted about half a minute and I’m back to disliking this. I spent my hard-earned money on it, though so I will be finishing it. This week preferably. I have baby quilts to get working on!
In theory, this isn’t a challenging project, but lining up the points for the angles was just so darn hard for me! I tried different methods of laying it out and pinning it, but nothing has made this simple. My seam ripper has gotten a LOT of use in the past week
The good news is that this project helped me make up my mind about our bedroom. It is my goal to finally get around to decorating it and making it a cozy spot this Spring. I chose this pillow kit because I loved the patterns and colors and thought that I could use them to compliment a quilt. We have a king sized bed. As I was attempting to practice some free-motion quilting yesterday afternoon, I realized that there was no way I could handle doing a quilt of that size. Then, I started calculating and decided that since I still haven’t finished piecing the top of the quilt I had planned for our queen sized bed, it would be best to not bite off more than I can chew.
However. I have found so many beautiful patterns I think that I will stick to making them in the smaller sizes and content myself with learning skills. All that to say, it’s a good thing I love throw pillows, because once I finish this one, I’m back to right angles for a while!
What are you working on this week?
