I like to multitask when I quilt - during classes at school, listening to books/music, or watching something online. I finally finished watching Doctor Who, so I'm kind of at a loss with what to do with myself while I quilt. Batman Begins will have to do for today.

Not that I have any readers yet (or will ever), but I thought it might be nice to share some photos of the stages of my quilt and the inspiration I had for making it.

This photo is my childhood quilt, nicknamed "Quilty" who I slept with almost every night until I was 12 (when she started to really fall apart).

This is my vary glorious workspace, which is, in reality, a part of my mom's desk that I commandeered and moved across the room. Everything looks quite neat because we had a cleaner come in earlier in the day (it's usually a massive pile of scraps, fabric, and a sewing machine hidden somewhere underneath).

And here is what I'm making:

Yup, hexagons. Hundreds and hundreds of little hexagons that I sew by hand into little hexagon flowers that turn out to be about the size of my hand. I have about 40 of them so far - aiming for 120ish for my quilt.
