Did I need a new project? Of course I did! My plan, when I finished piecing the top of my Hexie flower quilt, was to not start another hand piecing project until I finished hand quilting the hexie flowers (which still isn't even basted).
That didn't last long. I've already finished my Hexie Stars quilt, which was mostly pieced by epp and then machine quilted.
I loved doing the hexie flowers while traveling, and I find I really miss the stitching when we have to drive a couple of hours and I have nothing to work on. So I started something new.
this graph paper creation site. It was quick, simple and the templates are perfect.
I have a whole bin of 1 1/2" strips left over from making my Scrappy Log Cabin quilt and that's what I'm using to make the diamonds. The seam allowance is a little more than 1/4", but not enough that I'm going to worry about it.
