I Must Be Crazy

I worked on the binding of the cat table runner today, it's almost done.  I should have it finished by the end of the evening.

I must be crazy, as I want to make some hexagons just like my sister Deb and her One Flower Wednesday.  Just like Jean and her fun hexagons.  Just like Bonnie Hunter and her hexagons.

I have a hexagon template called "Piecing Pal Templates" by Quilting Creations International, Inc. and the largest template is 2 inches.  They are a nice heavy acrylic with a slot for you to trace the paper piece and you can use your rotary cutter on the outside line to cut out your fabric.

So I decided I want to make a king-size Grandmother's Flower Garden" using the 2 inch template.  I know, I must be crazy.  I'm not even going to try to figure out how many hexagons I'll need, as that would stop me from even thinking this is possible.

I had some old recipe cards and I started making the center "paper" pieces from those.  I also am making 1 1/4 " and 1 inch templates with the left over card.  It looks like such a nice carry project to do in the car or while waiting someplace.

So what do ya think?  Am I crazy?
