I was feeling so righteous about working to finish my Noteworthy quilt before I started a new project. But, I am teaching the Jumbo Hexagon piecing class next week at my local quilt shop, so I had to start preparations for that.
While the kids were at school yesterday, I started plotting…
I really wanted to make a kind of monochromatic quilt with gray fabrics I have been collecting. Then I had the idea to add in some really bright solid colors. I am sorting the solids in rainbow color groups and in groups from light to dark. Don’t those look so pretty?
Here is what’s on my cutting table:
oooh, la la.
I got a few hexagons sewn together. It was hard to remember that I had to focus on making demo pieces for my class…I am so excited, I just want to sew up the whole quilt now!
I can tell hexagons are going to something I will be doing a few projects with. My mind is racing with all the ways you can piece them and rearrange colors to make secondary patterns….and they sew together surprisingly quickly despite the set-in seams!
