Playing with solids
This is going to be a piece, I think, of a wall quilt for my partner in the Love of Solids [a modern swap]. I have wanted to make this swirly hexagon block since I saw it done by The Parfait Cafe (go here, her quilt is wonderful). She also provided a handy tutorial to make the block here, which I used.
So my idea for the finished item was different to start, but a creative friend challenged me to make sure I added a part of me to the whole project. So I am doing that and I am far more excited and also nervous about it. I hope my partner will like it in the end, there is a fair bit more to go, this part is only 6.5" wide by 22" long so far.
These are the start of my smaller project for the same swap. I have some quilting ideas to try out on them. I am having fun with this grown up palette which feels very modern in a totally retro way to me.
Tonight I hope to try another interesting block that another friend just whipped up for me. Internet friends are the best!
