Well I have not blogged in a while because I have been working on the same couple of projects and have nothing new to show. But then I thought progress is a good thing to show. So here goes! There is a quilt called The Godstone Grannies which Karen at Faeries and Fibres is busy recreating. I don't believe there is a pattern for this quilt. Search for it on Pinterest and the link will take you to a picture of it in a museum in England.
I truly fell in love with the colors the ladies used to make the quilt. I am normally not a brown, yellow and orange person but for some reason this quilt really spoke to me.
I love the designs within the diamonds.
Each diamond has 64 hexagons in it.
I am having so much fun recreating these.
Pulling fun fabrics! Some to fussy cut and some not.
A splash of green here and there. Paper Pieces.com generously allows one to print hexagon blanks so that you can draw in your own shapes. This is how I plan the diamond.
I am teaching a purse at my local quilt store and am making the center panel out of hexagons. Here it is so far. These are 1/2" hexies. The fabric is Moda Grunge.
I have also made a few more rosettes for my Soupçon quilt. I have been stitching like a woman possessed on all these hexagons and loving every minute of it. I hope you are loving your projects! Till next time, happy stitching.
