Two months is a good chunk of time, so I ordered the fabric with a view to making a Dresden plate lap quilt. I bought half yards of 33 different small print fabrics and started to cut out the blades. I only ended using thirty as one was flannel (my mistake) and the other two didn't fit in.
I thought I'd take the Dresdens with me and hand stitch them on while away.
Once I had cut them out, sewn the tops and pressed, they came together much faster than I though they would.
So, what to do in the quiet times while I'm away?
Make a hexagon lap quilt of course, with some of the same fabrics. Maybe a grandmother's garden quilt. I've ordered 400 1 inch hexagon paper. After I submitted and paid for the order, I changed my mind and ordered freezer paper from a company in Australia that sells American products. I had to order 4 rolls, so that ended up costing a bit. The iPad let's you be compulsive at great cost. I ordered the freezer paper so I could spend more buying the inklingo 1 inch template to print directly on the fabric. Have you used inklingo? Any reviews you would like to share before I spend $25 on a digital drawing of hexagons?
The horrid carpet under our house is the background for these photos. I think I'll use a pale lemon or a jacaranda flower coloured sheet for the background blocks.
