Given that the first Saturday in May is the most important holiday of the year, I'm giving myself a break from studying for finals and the CPA exam. I hate that I'm not going to my last Derby as a Kentucky resident, but what are you going to do? I hit a milestone on my Beekeeper's Quilt last night, so its update time.
200 puffs! My goal is 602 puffs (21 columns x 30 rows, minus the 4 corners for a more rounded edge), although I'm planning to keep adding on after I'm "done." This means I'm basically 1/3 of the way there, although the idea of having to make 2 more puffs for each one I've done kind of makes my brain hurt. I decided to start joining the puffs together so that the lovely artistic spill above doesn't happen in a moving truck.
I'm using sheepwokking's tutorial for joining, but I'm making these 19 puff hexagons to start with. My quilt will use 22 of these, plus a bunch of individual puffs to fill in the empty spots. I'm thinking that arranging these mini quilts at the end will help disperse all of the different yarns evenly throughout the quilt.
Super easy to see these big hexis, right? There are 10 here, plus 10 unattached ones. It's strange how addictive these little things are. 402 to go!
