I've been basting the hexies for my April BOM which is a basket. I think this fabric (tan/gold/maroon) will be stunning.
One of the items that finally came in at the LQS for Hexie Night was a 1" honeycomb acrylic template. Fussy cutting is soooooooo much easier with the templates! I've wanted to make a Patchwork of the Crosses quilt for quite some time but held off until the template came in. Now that it did I've started playing :)
These tone on tone pieces were pretty simple - you can see the gold was fussy cut but it's quite subtle.
|If you don't have a mirror...run right out and get one, they make this project so much easier.|
Next I'm going to fussy cut this awesome paisley fabric.My original plan was to make this quilt in scrappy, bright colors but I really like the red/green/gold/neutral combo so maybe I'll change my mind. Y'all are used to me changing my mind...
I was thinking this curved bit might be nice for the center of my block. Then again, this is the 4th section I thought would be nice and there is so much more to play with. I might need to get more of this fabric!
And just to change it up...these are the cookies I referenced in yesterday's post...they were fiddly and on the sweet side given all the brown sugar for the topping but they are also just as bad as hexies - can't have just one!!!
