HA! I love plays on words…..and I’ll start this post by talking about a few things as reminders.
TOMORROW is our last “Mystery Monday Link-Up” post for Orca Bay! If you have been working on Orca Bay and wanted to post your progress with us in the linky, you will have that chance tomorrow, so write your post, and link it up! If you finished your top and linked it earlier --- would you still link it again? I’d like to get as big a showing of Orca Bay quilts as we can get since this is the last time I’ll be doing a link-up for this quilt. Whatever stage you’ve reached, even if you are just beginning --- please join us and link up!
Also….as this posts I do believe the Super Bowl Sew-a-thon on twitter is still in full swing. I forgot to re-mention it earlier, but you can check out the details in this post HERE. It sounds like a lot of fun. I wish I were joining you, but I’m on my way to Annapolis, MD – so I’ll catch you from there!
And now for the LITTLE DETAILS part!
As you can tell from the picture at the top of the post, I came across a quilter who made me feel like MY hexie project was too big and on the normal side!
Holy. Hexagons. Batman!! Would you look at the size of these?!
How many hundreds of basted hexagons do you think are in this one little zip lock bag?! The crazy quilter even told me the story of how easy it is to LOSE a full bag of basted hexagons like this ---- she’s done it…poof…the whole bag was gone never to be seen again…I had to sit down due to heart palpitations at this point!
And just for comparison…Here is a section of MY hexie project…a full rosette of her hexies is still smaller than ONE of my hexies. I don’t think I could even SEE to baste these!
Isn’t this amazing?
Yep, it’s all in the LITTLE details!
