|The Queen for this month in Wombat Stew is Kristy and she has chosen a fun Garden theme. I asked her for a turtle pattern and I had it stuck in my head that his shell should be made of hexagons. She came up with a cute pattern (she always does!!)!! To make the hexies I printed out a hexagon template onto freezer paper (if i remember correctly these were 7/8"). I ironed the freezer paper onto the fabric then pressed the sides of the fabric around the template. Once the shape was made i gave it a good press and starch. I thought this would be a bit faster than hand basting and i think it was.|
Next up are my do.Good Stitches blocks. The pattern is out of the book 99 Modern Blocks and is called Free Wheeling by Natasha Bruecher. Thankfully it is paper pieced so I was right at home making this block.
|The quilter requested scrappy with lime green, purple, and orange surrounded by low volume prints.|
|She wanted the 2 blocks to have the low volume/color placement reversed. Scrappy- check. colorful-check. Low volume- check. I will be popping these in the mail this week.|
