Besides the hexagons I made for the felt coaster I posted yesterday, I’ve been busy with English paper pieced hexagons! It’s officially an addiction, which is a good thing because I need a lot.
My original math was 1118 hexagons for a twin blanket, but then I realized I was only calculating for the size of a twin mattress, not the size the actual blanket needed to be. The new total I need – 1880.
I’m keeping a tally of all the hexagons I make, separated by color. I plan on having 8 colors – pink, red, orange, yellow, green, teal/aqua, blue, purple. I didn’t have the teal/aqua category originally but I kept coming across colors I was having trouble categorizing as blue or green. So I need 235 hexagons of each of the 8 colors.
So far green is in the lead with 86. I have 494 finished, only 1386 to go…
What are you working on this week?
