Now that La Passacaglia
is finished, it’s time to start working on a new hand project. Last November Karen, who blogs at Faeries and Fibres
, did a trunk show and workshop at our guild. She has a unique set of designs for doing hexagons, which I’ve been itching to get at. But I kept putting it off until the beast of La Passacaglia was finished. The centre star section of this piece was started when I decided I would take part in a mystery hosted by Tonya at Hillbilly Quilt Shop
. I never managed to get any further than the centre, so I thought I could use it for this workshop piece.
This is the basic layout I’ll be doing. There will probably be some sort of a border and them more hexagons around the outside. I’ll probably appliqué them down to a background.
I had some fabric come in this week, but my used numbers are keeping up.
Used last 2 weeks: 5.5 yards
Used this year: 25.65 yards
Added last 2 weeks: 9 yards
Added this year: 20.45 yards
Net stash busted: 5.2 yards
