So I'm still on summer vacation, but I thought I'd drop in for a minute to post about my latest project. I am making a One-Block Wonder, using the cutting method from the book of the same name by Maxine Rosenthal. Yes, I am following an actual method! I have been fascinated by the possibilities with these quilts for a long time and thought it was time to make one myself.
Above is the fabric I chose. It is by Martha Negley. It has an 18 inch repeat.
AMAZINGLY, I cut very accurately and have a nice stack of triangles to work with.
I am really happy with my fabric choice. These are a few of my first hexagons. They are just pinned across the middle, not matched yet.
And more ... sewing these is fast and fun. I am loving the variety I am getting, although I will confess to improvising a little on the cutting and shifting a bit here and there to capture certain design elements.
And more. These aren't arranged at all, just put up on the wall as I go. I am maybe halfway done sewing the hexagons.
More pieces waiting. Hope you are enjoying your summer! I'll be back again in the fall.
And in the meantime, I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network. Why not surf on over and see what lots of Canadian quilt bloggers are up to!
