A Little Bit of This – A Little Bit of That

Call me Tiggr – I have been bouncing around from project to project.  First up – another Starry Night Hexie has been completed.  This is number 6 out of 10 full hexagon flowers for the wallhanging.

Each one is an adventure with a surprise at the finish.

Two more Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler blocks have been added to design wall.

A-7

N-9

My first thought was to alternate dark red & green cornerstones in the sashing. However I knew it was a mistake as soon as I saw it on the design wall – too dark & too distracting.

What if the cornerstones were a different fabric close in color to the sashing strips?

The cornerstone fabric isn’t noticeable from a distance, but is a nice surprise upon closer inspection.  Only two more blocks until the top row is completed and a sashing row attached.

Have a good weekend,

Design Wall Monday 09-24-18

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed sewing hexies until I did the hexie block for Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler.  Before the block was even finished I had planned my next EPP project.

It all started with this pattern from American Patchwork & Quilting website

and this fabric.

My piece of Starry Night fabric was 51″ long and contain 6 repeats at 8″.  I cut the fabric Stack-n-Whack fashion to make 18 groups of 2 1/2″ squares for 10 full hexagon flowers, 4 half flowers and 4 cornerstones.

Each grouping is the start of a new adventure of design.

A pale yellow batik is going to be the background.

This project is small wallhanging size at 27 1/2″ x 34 1/2″.  I wonder what tonight’s design will look like.

There may have been a bit of this going on also.
