Today I have two things to share. The first is my hexagon star:
Yes, the hexagon project has grown to such proportions that it requires a design lawn. It's also the only place I could get enough light. I'm aware this has become something of an abomination, but I just couldn't stop sewing those little boogers together. Planning, must remember planning! I guess the next step is to add a solid fabric between the star points. I have no idea how to measure for that or how to go about it or what color to use. Any ideas, insights, suggestions would be appreciated. Please be gentle.
Next up are the practice blocks for Heather Mulder Peterson's "Spaghetti Junction" from her book, Living Large 2.
Click here to see how the finished quilt is supposed to look. The patterns in the book are for large scale prints and it seems that I've accumulated quite a few that I'll be combining with a fat quarter bundle of Sandi Henderson's Secret Garden fabric in the Sunset Garden colorway. I hope it works. I'm using the rust colored chicken wire print where the pattern uses brown dot fabric. I plan to add a narrow inner border of that fabric as well. The block on the right finished out pretty much perfectly at ten inches. The one on the left is off in places almost a quarter inch. Back to the machine with that one. Accuracy is the absolute bane of my existence!
Check out what others are working on at Patchwork Times. Have a great week with lots of quilting!
