So, yesterday I was in the company of friends, working on my hexagon quilt. You may remember last week, I showed you this photo of my hexagon quilt and noted that The plan is to carry on with the light/medium/light/medium/light dark, but to reduce it by a hexagon each end for each round (I’ve started doing this – you can see on the right of the picture), so that eventually it will work its way to a point and be an overall square. At least I *think* that’s what will happen. Spatial skills are not my forte 😉:
Well, it turns out that I was right about the spatial skills! My friend pointed out that, if I carried on with my plan, then I wouldn’t end up squaring off, but rather creating a star point. My first thought was “hmm, a star quilt, that wouldn’t be so bad!” Then I realised that would really make the quilt ABSOLUTELY GINORMOUS! Instead, I decided to do this thing properly and plan it out on graph paper (thanks Incompetech). This is what I came up with and by Jove, I think it will work 🙂
Thank goodness for friends and graph paper.
