Michelle was kind enough tolend me her rotisoboard (round spinny cutting board thing) for the week, so I've been making the most of it be cutting out a bunch of hexies for my hexy MF quilt.
(also, I just installed instagram on my iPhone so have been playing with the photo editing!)
Some of them I have cut willy-nilly as far as the print is concerned - just making sure to use the least fabric - others have been cut carefully (like making the stripes run top to bottom) or even fussy cut (to put the checks, coloured diamonds or flowers in the centre.
I might have said this already, but each flower I sew up is my new favourite - even the ones that I make from fabrics that I wasn't sold on to start of with. The ones with geometric/stripey prints are probably my least favourite just as a length of fabric, but particularly cool sewn up into flowers - that orange one with the check in the middle is going to look amazing!
I have 5 flowers finished so far (remember, the hexy MF quilt uses 74!), with 15 more cut out - I think I'll do some basting over the next few nights (it is surprisingly therapeutic!)
Don't forget, there are loads more crafty spaces to check out over here!
