Still flying along!

I really have been flying on this hexagon quilt.  I’d say I’m just about halfway done and I’ve only been working on it for 2.5 weeks!  I was surfing today while I was stitching some pieces together and found an interesting website with the History of Hexagons.  I also saw a picture that gave me a great idea for the border, and no, I’m not telling until I have it designed out in EQ and know for sure that’s what I’m doing.  I still haven’t decided how big I want to go with this, but I do know I want to try hand quilting it.  I was thinking about making a small flower – maybe with 2 rings around the center hexi – and hand quilting that first before I start on the whole quilt.  I still want to take a class on hand quilting, but I don’t know if and when that will happen.  I forgot to post the picture the other day of the pile of 2.5″ squares I cut with my Accuquilt Go, so I’ve posted that below along with the current status of the top – I can’t wait to get more done!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about blogging and something bothers me.  You don’t know if anyone is actually reading it or if you are really just talking to yourself!  I know my hubby reads this, because it’s in his RSS feeds and he mentions it all the time, “I see you blogged today”.  But I don’t know if anyone else is reading this or not.  I don’t seem to get any comments, which makes me think either I’m not interesting, or no one is reading.  Oh well, it is what it is I guess.
