My design wall is empty because I'm writing from Seattle where the ALA Midwinter Meeting continues with good sessions, good friends, good food, and lots of good new books.
I have made more than 100 large (7-1/2" +/-) hexagon "flowers" out of neckties. I decided that it's time to start assembling them. I considered sorting them by color but decided to go with an eclectic arrangement. I quickly realized that I should stick with four flowers at a time because more than that becomes unwieldy, especially when I have to juggle the stitchery with taking notes. (I *do* pay attention to the speaker!)
I don't know how many flowers I'll put together, nor what I'll eventually make, nor how I'll quilt it.
I discovered a big oops, however. Do you see the six flowers on the right? They are oriented a different direction than the others and they will not nest. I need to settle on one direction and remember what it is. Otherwise I'll have to insert rows of hexes to compensate.
And here is a photo of the bathroom floor.
You can see what other quiltmakers are working at Design Wall Monday on Judy's Patchwork Times.
