Now, let's see some blocks! First is my version of Twisted Hexagon (a class I've taught for a few years, but only using rotary cutting and stitching).
|This is Dawn, but I call it Twisted Hexagon|
|Notice how this uses the same patches as Dawn|
|Marilyn Block #32|
Notice how Marilyn and Mary Ellen are very similar with the outside shapes. The center is pieced in Mary Ellen and a single fabric for Marilyn.
|Block #28, Mary Ellen|
And for the 4th "M" name: Marie! Don't you just love these motifs?
|Marie, Block #1|
Now for Dolores, Block #6. Very simple using three 60 degree triangles.
|Dolores, Block #6|
My students each get a pack of 100 1" papers, along with small sets with fabric of other sizes.
I am using a Benartex collection by Paula Nadelstern (Fabricadabra) and I have enjoyed fussy cutting the center hexagons. Here are a few more before I go:
|Rotary cut and stitched Dawn Block with Fabricadabra motif in center|
|Sarah, Block #3|
|6 of the 9 Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks using Fabricadabra fabrics|
|I had to make sure my stripes were all cut in the same direction|
I love that it is so easy to take along a little bag with papers, fabric, thread and needle. And I seem to always do more when summer comes.
I have more to share, but for now, these are happy to meet you!
