Do you remember when I talked about this lovely blue fabric and that it's one of my all time favorite fabrics ever?
And how I knew it came in red, and I didn't think I had any until......
I found that indeed I owned it and forgot!
I vowed I'd use it in a quilt for Journey Three.....and I did!!
Here's your last preview of a quilt for Journey Three.
The red print will be a border, blue print is sashing, and the light is the background.
The blocks are made from an assortment of blues....
....and butternut golden browns.
Just what did I make with my fabrics?
For many months I've been making lots of hexagons? I mentioned this in a prior post
when I was talking about managing my stash and how I love to display the hexagons
where I can enjoy them as I work to make enough for the quilt.
They are so cute and soooooo addicting. In Journey One & Two, we've been hand piecing Yo-yos and the bonus projects have used the Yo-yo's we've made. Well....changes are coming in
Journey Three! Hexagons will replace Yo-yos!! I'm so excited!! I've been having such fun
making hexagons. Lots of hexagons! When I look at a fabric I can't help but think about
whatit will look like as a hex. Just whip one up! If you love fabric, then you'll love making
hexagons from them! Very soon, I will have a complete tutorial on how to make a
hexagon sewn the English paper piecing way. I have designed a small quilt using the
hexagons as the bonus project for Journey Three. I've been working on it
in the evenings and I'm almost finished. I can hardly wait to show you!
Until next time.....feed your soul with the stitches you sew!
Oh I can't wait! This is looking so good. And I love hexagons too only I've been using the inklingo method for making them. Either way, it's all good. They are quite addicting. !!ReplyDelete
Journey 3 sounds wonderful! Can't wait to see it! Thanks for the teaser - gets me motivated!ReplyDelete
These Journey's keep getting better and better!!! I can't wait to see all your quilts in person. And yes, those hexies are addicting!!! Karen in IL.ReplyDelete
Fabulous fabrics! May I have your permission to use your post as a teaching example in a color mastery class? Cannot wait to see what those blocks grow into.ReplyDelete
Your such a tease, can't wait until Journey three. Love all those fabrics, my favorite colors.ReplyDelete

I hope you will do a quilt along each month on line with the quilts in the next journey. keep us inspired to make all the quilts in the club, if not I just may have to do something like this on my blog!
Can't wait to see pics of the Journey 3 quilts! I have never hexagons so I am looking forard to learning how to make them. Liked making the yo-yos.ReplyDelete
