My hexies are the only flowers blooming in my garden today. There are a few hardy blooms still out there, but tonight we are supposed to get a killing frost and then they will be gone too. It is cold and dark and gloomy today. I can hear the rain beating down on the roof of the solarium. Not a nice day for anything except staying indoors and sewing and quilting. But that is not a bad thing. Is it?
I am experimenting with my flowers. I feel that this flower pot quilt will not be as large as I would like it to be, so I am trying to see if I can add a border of hexies all the way around to increase the size - those triangle units surrounded by white hexies that you see in the top of the photo. They should add about a 5inch border on all sides. I am curious as to how to measure hexagons. I hear of 1 inch and .5 inch hexagons, but what does that mean? Are they measured along a side, or across from point to point down the middle or from point to point across the narrower part? Does anyone have an answer for me?
