here. My new obsession! Thank you Danielle for pointing out this QAL to me and sending me off on yet another tangent... But really she was just the tipping point. It all started about two weeks ago when I was delivering quilts to one of my local quilt shops. The owner and I somehow got into a discussion about English paper piecing and by the end of it I had two packs of 100 one inch paper hexagons in my bag! I really didn't think I would do something with those packs right away. Then last week I was basting a handful of quilts to be hand quilted for another customer, one of which was entirely made up of hexagons. It was so beautiful! I was swooning the entire time I spent basting it. The quilt along and my new assortment of Atsuko Matsuyama fabrics sort of clinched the deal.
I spent all of Friday night basting while watching Wimbledon -- go Roger! By Saturday I had used all the papers up and tested out sewing the flowers together this morning. Ahhh, I'm sure I should be doing something else in the long list of things I ought to be doing, but it's weekend and that is the excuse I am going to use:)
