I enjoyed working with these warmer colours so much that this inspired the start of the red 'Hot Wheel' quilt shown in the previous post ( I was so tempted to keep this one for me!)
This Goes with That/Variahex
Remember seeing these pop up in blogland? Ages ago (late 2010 or early 2011) I read some of Sue Daley's This Goes with That posts, showing how to make up hexagons with various shapes. This link is a recent post as I'm struggling to find the original tutorials she posted. Anyway, cut a long story short, I got stuck into this EPP during the Christmas break as a treat for finishing 'Hot Wheel'
Struggled a bit with the initial layout due to 'you know who' above joining in, so resorted to the wall where she couldn't lay on them.
Once I had a few made I started joining them together and they have gradually grown into a fair size quilt but I still need to do quite a few more.......
& finally for today here is the top that was strip pieced out of Civil war repros very quickly for my friends 50th birthday. (It's ok to post here as she doesn't read my blog) The last time she poped round for a visit she was eye balling my thimble quilt, so that gave me the idea for this one using the same fabrics in 3" squares making it quicker to put together.....it has since been quilted & bound but I didn't get round to taking a picture.
So, that all for today folks, next post will update you with more 2012 projects. See you soon, enjoy your week :)
