Today's zigzag! I liked yesterday's block so much with the conversational print (horns) that I dug into my stash to find another fun fabric. That light print may just look like a cute floral, but click on it and look closer: it's very Polynesian with little people dancing around. A happy fabric indeed!
I've begun to cut up Dad's shirts and play. This was my first attempt. :( Too busy. Not enough contrast. Hard to see the pattern. Nope, this won't work. But maybe I'll use this square to cover a pillow?
This is much better. Simple. Graphic. And how could I not make some hexies for Dad!? I want to make 3 quilts out of the shirts: one for me, one for my mother, and one for my brother. This is a 9 inch finished square. I'm not sure how many I'll need per quilt yet. I'm not making BIG quilts, just lap sized. I'm just going to dig in and start making blocks and worry about the final count another day.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
