A quilt top in pictures
I wanted to see how it would work to make a log cabin block starting with a hexagon instead of a rectangle. Then I got a little obsessed and spent the whole day making a toddler-sized quilt top.
It was addictive and quick. I think I need to make another one, maybe in solids… with a tutorial.
Great fabric and colour choices. What a great idea!
I especially like what happened when you went “off grid!” In fact you can start with any convex shape and do similar, right? Maybe we need to try that next. Thanks for the inspiration.
That’s such a great top – would love a tutorial!
What a striking quilt! I’d love to see a tutorial, too.
Hooray! I’ll work one up for next week.
You’re right! I use the same technique for almost all my convex angles.
Yep jenni and I will definitely use the tutorial. I’m tossing around whipping one up this weekend. I’ve been wanting to make a hexagon quilt and this will be a great start. 🙂
I would also love the tutorial. I took a class with Victoria Finlay Wolfe and this hexagon log cabin would work really well with her scrappy, manufactured fabric technique. I think I”ll try it one day.
