Over at Lily's Quilts a hex-a-long is being hosted i have been toying with some ideas for while using hexagons, so this seems a perfect moment to start.
I have had a dive around in the stash and ended up in the scraps bin and sorted it out into heaps this seems a good place to start.
I will see how it goes, the colours are mostly muted so i may need to add a little something at a later stage.
The templates i printed are from the Candied Hexagon quilt that inspired all this to start with.
I have always liked the challenges involved with recycling and make do with what you have rather than buying new every time. When picked up issue 7 of Making magazine I was delighted to find a project for making Rag rugs.
I have for sometime been hoarding my old duvet covers and sheets that are no longer useable unwilling to throw them away - this is because most of them were wedding presents and I feel very sentimental about them.
We have needed a new bathroom mat for awhile and it seemed a perfect way of using some of the old duvet covers, so after a sort through I came up with a cover and bed valance in shades of blue.
And after a little stash dive in my work room some blue & white and red & white fabric that I have had for many years.
So I am now turning this pile of strips into this this rug.
