I’m taking advantage of a brief spurt of enthusiasm for sewing to finish up the scrappy hexagon and blue spots quilt top.
It poured after dinner so I spent about a half hour sewing blue triangles to hexagon blocks and got ten done before the rain eased off a bit and we headed out the door.
To start the assembly I sew one blue triangle to opposite sides of the hexagons. Then these blocks will be sewn together in diagonal rows. This all goes together really quickly because these blocks are big.
It gets a little tricky on the bottom and top of the quilt, but it’s still pretty simple construction.
After our walk I finished sewing the triangles to all hexagon blocks that aren’t on the bottom or top row. I want to do those rows when I’m fresher because they require a little more attention.
But I did cut the remaining triangles I need to finish all the blocks. Then I sewed most of them into pairs. I’ll show how the bottom and top rows go together on another blog post.
We got rained on for the first two miles of our three-mile walk. But like they say in Oregon, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate equipment. So I put on a rain coat and a water proof baseball cap, leashed up the dogs and headed out. They got really wet, but they just don’t care!
For the final mile of our walk we got to watch a really beautiful sunset develop.
So, of course, I had to have the boys pose too!
The past couple of weeks I’ve been making sure to walk through our park on the way home from our walks and let the dogs run free for a few minutes. They really enjoyed their run in the cool and damp air tonight.
Rico’s enthusiasm shows all over his face… and his head… and all over Bender!
