I Spy preview
All laid out! Now I'm ready to stitch the hexagons into rows and the rows into a quilt top. Often people just do it randomly, but I like to make sure I don't have several squares with a black background together, or all the animals in a little cluster. Laying the quilt out before sewing gives me the opportunity to move the blocks around. I would like a design wall, and will probably make one soon, but for now I use a flannel-backed vinyl tablecloth on the floor. The pieces stick, so I can move the whole thing, or roll it up and take it somewhere. It would be a lot easier to stand up and do this on a wall than to crawl around on the floor!
