Fairy Frost, Day 4

Another day, another way with Fairy Frost. Actually, a continuation of yesterday and those lovely hexagons. Let's see some of the beautiful hexagons in Fairy Frost and Gingham Play. I cut my fabrics and then stitched a lot of hexagons. This photo shows the orange block done. Sweet, huh?

Block parts with a single block finished

I am not going to add the outer solid hexagons on the sides of these blocks. I'm going to float them on a background made up of various light colored Fairy Frost. I only have fat quarters, so that limits me. I like that sort of challenge!

I'm going to try and recreate some version of a quilt I've made a few times before. The one in this picture was made with class samples from several years ago. I had four rectangular blocks and when I put them together the center was too boring! I added a fifth block to that center and it filled in the space beautifully. One of my students, Lori, said this was her favorite quilt from the workshop. I named it after her!

You saw my lavender block yesterday. Here's my green block before putting it on the Fairy Frost background rectangle.

Here are my 4 blocks stitched together. Not really exciting, but I'm not done! I have another 9 of these blocks that I plan on adding. Not sure where I'm actually going, but it will be similar to what you see above in the quilt picture.

I like to make my quilts on the fly. Things often change as I go along. I think this will be the case for this quilt because out of the corner of my eye I am seeing this up on my design board and some other pieces of Fairy Frost that I cut and I'm just not liking it. I think the seam ripper is calling to me!

You may see these separated tomorrow! Come back and see. . .


  1. Love the blocks of paper piecing. For me it is a great hand piecing block.
    Thanks for ideas.

  2. Yes, I do a lot of this type of handwork in the Summer. A great take-a-long sewing project.
