I decided to enter my Pure Hex Pillow in The Great SMS pillow contest.
I was so frustrated and DONE with hexagons by the time I actually finished this quilt.
I wanted to toss all the extras and be done with it.
My inability to throw away any usable fabric saved me from that.
Instead, I unpicked the matching 1/2 hexes and re-sewed them into 6 scrappy hexagons.
Then I sewed them into an odd shaped table topper.
I looked at it and thought
I wonder if I can sew all the edges together and make a pillow.
So I did.
It was quite the challenge.
I kept having to re-check the seams I was going to sew.
I didn't turn out how I thought it would, but I totally like it.
I don't think I'll make another one though...
Well, maybe if someone asked nicely.
and gave me chocolate.
