On the Road Again

I'm leaving this evening for a short conference in Oulu, Finland and packed up some supplies for hand-sewing on the four hour train trips there and back. If only I'd discovered hexagons while I was clocking endless hours on Romanian trains nearly every week (2003-6), just imagine the number of bed-size quilt tops I would have created!! But alas, I didn't get hooked on them until this past fall with the help of Nadine. Here are a few coming together for something small - not sure exactly what yet. (The hexagons have sides measuring 2cm.)

The hexagons are in beautiful colours. Do you plan to make the whole quilt in red??

Dawn said...

Oh they are wonderful! Can't wait to see what you decide to use them for!

Clare said...

Um - red and white? Jen what are you up to? Have a good trip.

Lily said...

Oooh I love how you've used the same fabric inside as one of the outsides. Lovely. And another idea!!

Enjoy your conference :)

English paper piecing is the best. Enjoy stitching away while you travel.

The hexagons are great in those rich reds. That's one of the things I love about them - so portable. My project is too big now to carry with me on the ferry - soon it will be finished I swear. Too many things to do!

Love the reds for the hexagons! Like many others I have a hexagon quilt in my future - I think from the scraps of my pre-1830's medallion quilt.
