Hexagon #2 - Let's Sew With Inklingo!

 Hi There!

Important Inklingo links:

Note: When you place your Inklingo order, please advise Linda Franz that Rosa Robichaud recommended you.  I would appreciate that.  


Onto Hexagon #2, with Inklingo!

The 1st hex was easy and.... 
well, let's admit it, kinda boring.

But wait till you see them all, close-up and personal!

I figured these ones were like little pie pieces.

To make Hexagon #2, you will need:

Hexagon .75 (x 1)
Hexagon the Other Half (x 6)
Triangle .75 (x 6)
Diamond .75 (x 6)

I laid the pieces out and this is what it would look like.

Gilbert saw this and said, "Oh, you're making a Halloween quilt?"

*insert LOUD sound of screeching car brakes, here*


I wanted to use a dark navy with different oranges and yellows, to make my hexagon quilt dramatic.  These hexies were too close to my nose, I think. I never realized that YES, these colors did INDEED look like Halloween colors and NO, that's NOT what I wanted to make!

*insert a LOUD and LONG sigh, here*

Soooooo, I took the first hexagon apart as well as the pieces to the 2nd one.  I will replace the dark navy pieces with some various WOW (White on White) fabrics.

In French, there's a saying that says that "Not only fools can change their minds."

Also, I had originally wanted to make each hexagon a different orange or yellow. But, since some of Linda's hexagons have TWO colors, with white, I thought, "Why waste perfectly good pieces?"

I got 2 ziplocks and am putting left over pieces in them, according to "size".  Figured it would be easier to keep track of them, this way.


Also, my printer doesn't take different sized paper.  Although, in the meantime, I DID figure out how to use small pieces of fabric, for Inklingo.

You just iron your small piece of fabric to your 8-1/2" X 11" piece of Freezer Paper and you put 'er through your printer!

Easy, eh?

Here's a picture of my 1.50 pieces.

Yesterday evening, I was curious as to how many had visited my blog since I posted on my 1st Hexagon.

Lookee, Lookee!

This is THE most viewers I've ever had!

Oh what a fun adventure this will be!!!

Have a Fantastic Friday, everyone!!!

I am with you all the way. I realize the bee isn't a INKLINGO-able Hexie, that is until you finish the PP, but in the end I printed out a 6" hex on FP to iron onto the finished block to make sewing it together easier, the INKLINGO way.

At least you caught the "Halloween-ness" before you spent the time stitching it up. I think whenever orange is in the mix there's always a chance that you or someone else will think Halloween. thanks for posting a link in Inklingo group messages
