Twinching along ...

Even though we rented a mac-daddy vehicle to drive the thousand miles to my parents house, I couldn't take my sewing machine with me. Even if I were able to take it, I wouldn't have been able to use it on the way down.

Instead I cut into this stack of beauty:

And used this handy dandy kit:

To make these:

Right now they are airing out. My parents both smoke, so they are bit stinky. A couple of weeks (and a little Febreze) should do the trick. I'll start attaching them to each other in a few days. I am still on the fence as to whether or not to add batting and have this as a lighter quilt. Thankfully I have a little time to decide.

I love the colors of your hexagons. I never leave town without some art materials, so I can relate. I also visit local art sores whenever possible, so usually come back with more. :)

These are terrific and what a great way to pass the time. I know what you mean about airing them out - love your solution!
