And this is probably why. But it's rather a nice headache to have.
That is one enormous clash of colours. A little too much for my work-addled brain to handle, but the lovely spare bed with the even lovelier twisted hexagons on it is the only bed with good enough lighting in the house that I can use as a horizontal design wall.
I lie - it's the only bed clear enough to use as a horizontal design wall.
I was trying to work out tonight how many hexagons I needed to make a full queen sized quilt. Just hexagons and diamonds - no borders.
Turns out it's not enough. So I've rejigged the design (not that I ever had a design) a little so all I have to do is sew an edge of hexagons to each side, a row of hexagons to the bottom, and add 10 rows of 3 to the top to make a bed topper. Then I'll add a border in a lighter grey to make it a full queen size. So I haven't got far to go - and I only started a little over two weeks ago.
I'm loving this quilt so much.
Who knows? By the time the Paralympics are over, I may have an entire quilt top.
But no promises, and no pressure. I'll leave the racing to the athletes.
