After a stressful January, I thought I would take some therapeutic time for me, and spent some time the last few weekends working on my own projects. I very quickly cut and pieced the hexagon quilt using a lovely moda fat quarter bundle called Mama said sew which is still in progress up on the design wall, waiting for a few more hexagons to be sewn together at home. Its not quite there yet and I haven't been in the mood for it this week but I love looking at it whilst I work - and I just love the design wall it is so cool. I really need to sew them together though, as each time I hoover my studio it blows a few off the wall.....
While I was making it though, I had a gorgeous delivery of some Art Gallery fabrics, which I very easily became distracted with, and very quickly put together a small quilt with large triangles to showcase the fabrics which was fast to make. I seem to like making very geometric shape quilts just lately. I have used some larger sashings so that I can quilt some lovely modern quilting on that solid grey. Although I think it will be quite some time before I have the time to quilt them, so off to the "to be quilted" pile they go.
You may notice the asymmetry of this quilt, which I did not really take account of when I just threw it all together, and I really don't like it to look at so I think that I will be adding some appliqued half triangles to the large grey side areas on each side to balance it up. Next time I will remember I need to have an odd number of triangles in each row to keep it symetrical .... LOL - so watch this space with this one as I may just leave it and make use of those large areas for something different. I already have some fun quilting ideas for this one too. If you like the fabrics used on this quilt, I have some fat quarter bundles for sale too.
