1st block : I decided to use the pattern that Amy demonstrated for us in the video clip I chose the Yellow cotton background I also chose to uselight weight cordory cotton tartan plaid. 2nd block : I used SandiePink's Idea of a turtle choosing the same yellow cotton and using a scrap of brocade silk. 3rd block : I used Sally Jo's idea choosing the Yellow cotton background a dark cotton print and a light denum print 4th block : I used another one of SandiePink's Idea of a bird in flight. I chose a print light denum and paired it with blue plain light denum.
What was your inspiration?
I like Amy's methods and am always looking for new and better ways of doing things.
I found it very relaxing to sit and watch TV while pinning them together.
Just like the hexicons were.
What are you most proud of?
I'm proud of the variations I'm working on and the turtle which will be installed on a purple and pink quilt for a little girl.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Follow amy's instructions and it should turn out.
I tried some of the suggestions of doing a circle and then cuting in 4 It did not turn out as good.
