The hexagons in my header is an on going quilt; one that has been in my grab and go bag - you know, one of those things you take with you when you are in a hurry and haven't had time to sort anything else out. I also did quite a few of them when I sat with my Mother in the hospital in the week prior to when she passed on. I had an engineer make me a template out of steel. The template has a whole in the centre so I can draw a cutting line and sewing line onto my fabric. I then match up the lines and stitch to my heart's content. It is such a pieceful thing to do, and I really enjoy the end result. I have to say Pinwheels, Logcabins and Hexagons are my most fabourite blocks.

Hi, Sue. I love your hexagon quilt. So pretty! I also would love to have one of those bags like you made yourself for that retreat. So very cute! I am about to make some bags for myself - just have to finish some other projects first.
