Big Hexagon quilt
So forgive my flight of thoughts, let's get back to the quilt. It is strongly inspired by a great quilt in Material Obsession 2 (by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke). I loved those great big log cabin like hexagons from the first moment I saw them. I wanted the quilt to be a bit bigger than the one in the book, so it kept growing and the more I added to it the happier it seemed to be.
So, I get lots of questions about how I did the little squares. It is so easy and fast I am almost embarrassed.I am going to do a series of tutorials so I will take requests...the first will be the tiny squares and the second will be Gwen Marston's no math method of making the diamonds on point boarder....anything else? You let me know in the comments and I will make it so. So, until tomorrow, or later today depending on if I need to drive my husband around somewhere I will have the little squares up.
Have a lovely Thursday!
PS, Sarah Fielke has a new book out in Australia and I want it so bad I can hardly stand it. It is named Quilts from little things and it looks AMAZING!
