Monday mystery solo robin

January 11, 2021

Another Monday and another day I am glad I have a routine, if a bit more minimal than it used to be. I nearly said normal, but that’s not right. Life moves on and for now this is normal and I need to remember that and work with what I have. Which also applies to shopping (front of my mind as I was just doing it). A lot of products are currently not available. That isn’t to say there isn’t plenty to buy just that I need to adjust and plan different meals. That might actually be a good think, it is very easy to get stuck in a rut and this does prevent that. I also notice a lot of bigger packs of basic foods are no longer available. I am guessing this is an attempt to help everybody get some. If I am right I think that is a very neat way to go about it. Anyway, I doubt you came to hear about my theories on grocery shopping, you probably wanted a quilting task for the week.

This week our design idea will be


That doesn’t feel great for me. I wonder if this is the point I have to make the hexagon into a square. Or i have to get really creative to almost hide 8 sides within all my 6s. Certainly food for thought. OK, next step how much space do we have to play with,

Add a total of 10″ to two opposite sides of your quilt.

OK that I like. I want to add 8″ of octagon to one side just because it feels the right sort of number. I know that actually from a drafting point of view it may be the wrong number but it feel appropriate to me. Now I just need to work out how to make 8 sides look like 6. I am sure there is a way I just need to work it out.
