I should call this post "Alpha and Omega" because this is the first and last one of these I will make. It's a first birthday quilt for our grandson and it certainly is bright. And it's not very big and I'm OK with that!
I should not complain -- the smaller hexagons were donated by a quilter from a chat room that I followed. I believe her mom cut these for a quilt she was never able to make. So -- a post appeared one day with the offer of the hexagons to the first requestor. I was lucky enough to be first and she quickly forwarded them to me. I had started cutting the larger ones with a template and realized this was going to take forever. I don't tend to use novelty fabrics except for an occasional pillowcase. So -- as a result of her generosity, this quilt was finished last week
With all that said -- it was a pain to figure out what the dimensions for the smaller setting triangles needed to be. Lots of trials, errors, ripping and then figuring out that I could cut them from a 2.25" strip. It took me a while to realize how I should position the bias of the triangles since this is put together in rows with no inset seams. Way too many bias pieces to suit me -- thank goodness for silk pins.
So -- I like it and am glad it's done. Don't you love this nurse with attitude? I asked a friend for this piece when I saw a quilt she was working on for her daughter's teacher (or someone). Anyway, I love her and wanted her in the quilt!
I hope you are piecing and are keeping your "attitude" as well. Jan
