My quilt guild challenge this year was to make a piece that included shapes and the color blue. I used the book The New Hexagon by Katja Marek as the basis for my incorporation of shapes.
|Rhombus, Trapezoid, Triangle, Parallelogram, Hexagon, Rectangle, Square|
Of course, for the back I had to use something else space-related...how about monkey astronauts?!!!
Another hexie project I have been working on is this:
I hand-pieced most of this while on a cruise this summer. The line of fabric is called Caravan, designed by Jennifer Young for Benartex Fabrics. It is so fun to chose a particular design repeat in the fabrics for a stunning effect.
So far it measures approximately 26 inches around. I will add more hexagons, but not until after the holidays.
