Last week I showed off my first attempt at making hexagons and said that I was making something little (and top-secret) with them. The resulting turtle has since arrived at its new home in Germany, so I can share a picture now. I'm not sure I have a future in making small animals, but this was fun to make for a friend. Click was much easier with her straight seams! I don't know if the turtle is a boy or a girl - guess it's up to his/her new roommate to decide/discover!
As for the other hexagons, I have no plan for them. They're a little small for a full-sized quilt - I might move up to 3cm hexagons for something like this cool quilt Jenny blogged about. They're larger than the ones required for Nadine's tote, but maybe I can adapt that pattern for slightly larger hexagons. No hurry to decide, though!
Haven't done any sewing all week - it's that end of the semester craziness, plus all the Christmas events going on! Hope to work a little on the medallion this weekend. (It definitely needs a better name!)
