I am never without a handbag project, I have them across a variety of interests - patchwork, embroidery, crochet, knitting, there is always something that I can work on and usually I am working on a variety of projects at any given time. This project is something that has been on the go for a year or so, it has become too big for my handbag and now resides near my armchair. It is a scrappy blue and white quilt, made with the quilt as you go technique and will be a large queen size quilt when it is finally finished.
The first step was to cut out hundreds of these. Four hundred and seventy three full hexagons and 20 half hexagons. This would make a quilt that was twenty one hexagons wide and twentry three hexagons long.
I decided to work my way through my box of blues. Somewhere along the way I lost count and have an extra hundred blue hexagons cut out - perhaps a cot quilt.
Eventally I had long rows of twenty three and it has became to difficult to carry around in my handbag.
