Monkey and I stitched our first five Inklingo flowers for the World’s Biggest Hexagon Quilt a few weeks ago, but we want to have more ready to mail to Australia by November 15th. Russ will be watching the World Series tonight, so I need to be prepared for a cosy Saturday evening at home. PBS is showing an old Sherlock Holmes mystery (love Jeremy Brett) and an old Poirot. Since I have seen them both before, this is an ideal Inklingo stitching opportunity. If baseball is your choice, you will probably have even more time to stitch. “Baseball is six minutes of action crammed into two-and-one-half hours.” (Dusty old quote) There is plenty of time to stitch a few flowers between pitches, eh?
Will you join us?
There are instructions for printing hexagons with Inklingo in this earlier blog post, and you could print a page of 6 green hexagons (for centers) and six more pages of 6 hexagons in other fabrics in only a few minutes. You still have time before the action starts. We could hand piece together.
I am not printing any more hexagons yet because I have dozens of sets of six pretty one-inch hexagons from Inklingo swaps, including several good greens for the centers. All of the details about the World’s Biggest Hexagon Quilt are on this page. After the big event, your Inklingo flowers will be a comfort to someone in a nursing home.
Inklingo flowers are much faster and easier than ones that are English Paper Pieced, so Inklingo quilters should be able to contribute a significant number of flowers, don’t you think?
I hope you are stitching to be part of this fun project too. Please let me know if you are.
