Monday Morning Star Count – on a Tuesday Afternoon

25 Mar

I wasn’t ready to post yesterday morning because, you see, I only finished sewing this baby together last night.

And this is it. I’m done with the hexie portion of this Union Jack pattern. Over 500 hexies basted and sewn together.  It’s been a project on my coffee table since last November; I think I might miss it!  Next up: a scrappy triangle border to surround the flag. I started last night and I think it’s going to be a long process. It’s hard to go back to the machine after getting so comfy hand sewing on the couch! It’s also hard since it seems Sherlock is no longer available on Hulu … Sherlock was my watch-over-and-over kind of show. I guess I need a new one.

[I’m trying to link up with Life Under Quilts … but wordpress isn’t letting me insert a link at the moment.  Huh.  I’ll try again later and once I do, then you should click to the link to check out other awesome hexie projects!]

    Wow – really so similar – guessing from the same Tania Baucher book! Please keep posting, I love the ‘similar but different’ – and I too love Sherlock… Have you seen The Bletchley Circle – different but good about a bunch of code breakers retired….. Love it Di x

    Very nice! I know what you mean about working in hand while watching television.

    […] I’ve done hexagons; this time, I’m trying diamonds. (Yes, the hexagon project was the Union Jack flag quilt. Yes, it’s still not done. Yes, I should probably finish that one before starting another one. […]
