So imagine my surprise when I, desperate for a project but unable to travel the 45 minutes one way for the nearest to me quilt shop (that meets my criteria), begrudgingly went to the local Jo-Ann's Fabric. I don't think I've ever been in a Jo-Ann's this big. I mean huge-so huge, there is an independent sewing machine dealer inside of it.
I was desperate and I was satisfied. I bought several items to get me started on what will be my next long-term quilting project. It's a 1" hand-pieced hexagon quilt top...or at least it will be. I have been following Texas Freckles blog with the very helpful videos and tips.
I might not go insane on this family vacation/visit after all.
I don't know how big the finished quilt will be, but I like the idea of piecing and then laying them out in a gradual color spectrum. The only problem with that strategy is that you have to piece a whole heap-a-hexes in order to get the color layout right. Let me get piecing and see how this goes. ~ksp
