Well, I stayed on track for the entire week -- devoting myself to hexagon piecing and workshop samples!! Happily, most of my 30 minutes sessions drew out into an hour or more!
This is the bed runner I made using 5 Rose Star blocks. I'm using this workshop to introduce my students to Marti Michell's new Crown and Kites templates.
I'm so pleased with the blend of new and old fabrics I achieved!
It's layered up and ready to quilt on Monday
And here is the stack of "sunflowers" cut with same template set that I'm piecing as part of Nathalie's "not a mystery" quilt over at Les Ouvrages de Nat
Piecing these blocks have been my sew-offs all week as I chain-piece through the set-in seams and assembly of the Rose Star blocks. There is no deadline for this quilt but the cheerful color palette makes it joy to piece on a winter day.
Next week, my focus will be a traditional hexagon reproduction quilt and getting it organized into manageable units so students in my Hexie Lovers Workshop will be able to discuss dissecting a design for construction. (There are still a few openings?!)
