I love quilting and always have, but I have reached new heights of "have to quilt" lately. I find the whirr of the sewing machine so soothing and just love the last stage when you pull a quilt from the dryer and it is all crinkly and warm. I also love all of the stages, so I don't shove tops in drawers like I maybe have in the past.
I have discovered hexagons...well the large ones. I tried English piecing a few years ago and decided it wasn't for me. But I love sewing the larger ones. I used a half hexie ruler with this doll quilt and will quilt a lap sized one tomorrow.
There have been so many beautiful pictures of the granny square quilt block as well as quilt alongs. I promised myself that I would make a quilt using them. I am a little late to the party but am just smitten with making this block. The color possibilities are endless.
