As you all know some time ago I started another hexagon quilt. This time working the hexagons into stars. I joined these star shapes into a larger star with a traditional 6-point hexagon in the middle. Now I have began the process of joining them into a quilt. With the single round of star shapes I sewed 2 rounds of cream hexagons and are using these for the joining pieces. This has now made a secondary shape in the piece - a 3 pointed star. As I work through sewing the shapes together it will be more pronounced (hopefully...)
While hand sewing all of the above, I actually finished machining my mat of 1.5" strips. It now resides by my front door. Yes, I do allow visitors to step on it!!!!!
This year is Geelong Patchwork & Quilter's Guild's 30th birthday. All members have been given a piece of cream background with instructions to make a 5" finished, bound, hexagon. We could 'decorate' the middle anyway we wish and have also been asked to sign it. These will then be sewn into a large quilt for hanging at our meetings. Hopefully every financial member will have contributed a hexagon. This is my contribution - as I love hexagons I appliqued 3 on to mine.
