I didn’t manage to get a good full shot of my Somewhat Circular Hexagon quilt before bolting out the door to teach. I had to move it out since I wanted it to be hanging in the shop as a new sample for next Thursday’s Hexagons By Machine workshop. There are openings in this class if you are curious about the methods of strip cutting hexagons and piecing them by machine.
I’ll be sure to get some photos of it next week and post them. I’ve got my eye on some huge floor pillows that want this design on them. You know I like pillows.
Somewhat Circular is my second quilt finish for 2015, I think this quilt doubles what quilts I produced in 2014. My first was my Double-Trouble quilt hanging at the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild’s exhibit opening at Island Quilter. I’ll be on the island Sunday for an Open Quilting Studio at IQ and hope to snap some pictures of it to share. Anyone’s welcome to come work on projects and check out the guild’s quilts.
The binding was a hard pick on this one, but the black print worked great with the backing.
As you can see there are a few lines of quilting still needing to be removed and some to be added in, but the color way is spot on and the Essex linen really works with the black background fabrics.
I used this quilt to photo my Cutting Corners Binding Tutorial this week if you missed it.
It’s a beautiful Seattle day to stay inside and sew (and avoid laundry;).
Happy Friday Peeps!
I had a cancellation and now how one slot left in my Improv Log Cabin Workshop on Tuesday. Come play!
