Look away now if you’re not keen on hexagon patchwork. People seem to either love it or hate it, like other forms of English paper piecing.
I just did a couple of these a few weeks ago:
[Janice, you might need to sit down and breathe into a paper bag. You’ll be fine :-)]
So WHY, you might well be asking. Honestly? I don’t know. In my former life as a miniaturist I made a whole scale quilt this way that measured about 6″ square. I ended up giving it away as part of a doll’s house bedroom set on eBay so I assume it’s still out there somewhere in the world. Scale fascinates me, particularly the very small. I guess I just wondered if I could still do it. The desire to do again what you used to do well as a younger person I think is one of the many signs of approaching middle age and the sense of panic that accompanies it. A futile desire to hold off time. This time round I need reading glasses before I can even thread the needle!
