On a roll (pun intended)


This morning I cut the pieces from the strips I sew yesterday while listening to book on CD.

Since I moved a lot of my stuff from the living room sewing corner to the sewing corner branch in DD1’s former bedroom I do again have space to be organized.
I love being organized - time spent looking for things are wasted time for me !


After I was done cutting all the wedges for the hexagons, I put them in this cute box and worked on 2 halves of a hexagon at a time. When  was done I could pile them neatly,
and before I knew it I had a fairly good pile and still had spare room on my desk :-)

By 5 pm I had finished all the 80  halves !!


I know how I will join these hexagon halves, but for now they will rest in the box. Maybe tomorrow I will spread them out on the floor and start joining the units, or maybe not - time will tell :-)

PS. for those wondering - I am using a 60 degree ruler for the cutting.

Du verden for et TEMPO!
Rgner med at du syr sammen halvdelene i remser, slik May Britt gjorde...
Gleder meg til å følge med på fortsettelsen her :-)

Dette er berre så freistande! Ser at nokre av stoffa har eg i lageret mitt, 3 godbitar eg kjøpte i Madrid... Så du er litt hekta på sekskantar for tida. Artig at det er mange måtar å sy dei på. Dette blir vel ein ny mani...fekk i alle fall veldig lyst...hehe.

I love hexagons and I love your way of using a jelly roll!
Looking forward to see the finished quilt! It will be great!!!

Oh I am so enjoying watching your progress. I have 3 Jelly Rolls which I'm eager to use .... I have too many ideas though and your posts have just added yet another idea of how to use them. Decisions decisions ....

Take care.

Flott prosjekt du holder på med. Jeg er veldig spent på hvordan du takler alle spissene som møtes inne i midten på blokka. Har du noen tips kanskje??

Anne said...
