Hexagons are sucking me into the handsewing vortex

I have not handsewn any hexagons for over 30 years, after a hideous attempt with Laura Ashley needlecord in sludgey green, maroon and dark blue. I have stated on several occasions " that there's more to patchwork than hexagons, paper piecing and hand-stitching".

So why, when reviewing my recent photos of other people's quilts , do I find the series below and then find myself searching for Jackie Wills paper templates on ebay? Is it the new, gigantic telly that means I need a portable project, rather than seeking refuge at my sewing machine? Where will it lead?
