By day, I'm your average, run-of-the-mill PhD student, but by night...
...I hand-sew this hexagon quilt (well, and other things I don't discuss on the blog).
I've been working on these hexagon-pieced diamond shapes when I have some free time, using my tutorial. This explains why I've been posting only about food lately. Progress is slow.
Eventually, I'm going to attach all the diamonds together with lines of ivory hexagons, like in this inspiration photo from flickr/Aunt-Mary. I'd say the hexagons are approximately 1.5" tall, made from fabrics I've bought as well as scraps that have been lying around. I have about ~40 of the diamond-shapes, who knows how many more I'll need for a full/queen-sized bed.
