The last thing I need is a new project, but I just couldn’t resist! My friend Jessica sent me a photo of an English paper pieced quilt where the hexagons were made of triangles. I immediately fell in love with the idea and had to try it right away.
The photo used solid fabrics, but I wanted to use prints, I have so many scraps from the hexagon quilt I’m making.
I don’t love basting the triangles as much. I’m not sure if it’s because of the size (each side is 3″) but I was having trouble keeping the edges tight enough when I was basting them.
I am extremely happy with it though, I love the way it looks. I think I might slowly start working on making more of these hexagons for a quilt, all of them using different colors. I have far too many projects to finish first, but I do think it’ll be pretty fabulous when I finally have the time to focus on this one!
Have you seen any projects lately that you just had to try out immediately?
