Not too long ago, I posted what I thought would be my final hexagon flower for the quilt I'm making. I was ready at that point to start in on the white border pieces. But then I decided to make sure my original plan would give me the size I anticipated. Now, since I teach math, normally I don't have a problem with calculating and recalculating. But, honestly, sometimes after work I just can't stand the thought of doing more math. So, I decided to just go ahead and sew some together and measure with my arms to reach the desired width. Here's the hexie chain....
And the verdict....need to go wider and consequently a bit longer than planned. So then I "had" to do the math and .... I need 40 more?! Ah, well I love sewing the hexie flowers so I just got busy. Here's 3 I finished this week.
I usually try to do one per night, so hopefully I can get back on track and keep up the pace... well maybe every other night!
Oh, and don't forget to stop by One Flower Wednesday's to see more hexagon projects and progress...there's a button on my sidebar.
Oh Linda, how lovely! I really like your flowers.
I can't even begin calculating as I am making hexi-flowers for 3 or 4 projects! LOL
But I really like the way your quilt will look, congrats!
Wendy, how you ended up being Linda, I don't know...
Oh well, it's late and linda which means beautiful in spanish sounds like lovely...
In any case, Wendy great job and your new 40's will be made really quickly, you'll see!
Lovely flowers, Wendy.
your flowers are very lovely.
Your flowers are lovely.
I think it is not so easy to calculate how many hexies are needed for a quilt.
Love the names you have given to your flowers Wendy. The hexie chain looks great and you will have the 40 needed flowers stitched in no time.
Wonderful flowers! I especially like Powder Puff.
Hi Wendy...you have made more beautiful flowers for your garden...They really are lovely.you will soon get the other 40 done...Kate x
Your latest hexis are beautiful. I am so glad to hear you need to sew more because that means you'll have more to show us. I have a softspot for show and tell.
