Just how do you think I could pass that beauty up???
I did a little online research and found a tutorial for the darling mini/doll quilt shown to the right. Essentially the block is created by cutting larger hexies into smaller pieces the author calls kites and petals.
I had some 2" hexies so I thought I would just get one set cut and see how it looks ;)
Yikes, a little dark, but you get the point. Each rose will be about 12 inches so it should go together pretty fast...if only my EMT class wasn't cutting into my sewing time...
And then I started thinking about fabrics. I would really like to not have to buy anything, how anti-quilter of me!, and then I remembered I had this 9 piece FQ pack. What do you think? Enough contrast? Some quilters in the Flicker group noted that solids really helped give their blocks some pop. I am certain I can find a few solids to add and that stripe would be an awesome binding.
