It is rare I want to make a quilt a second time.
I hung my Hexy Stars up in the ever changing rotation at the house and I love it all over again.
If you've been reading my blog for a while you might remember I posted about it HERE. I finished it many years ago, machine pieced and hand quilted.
I think it fits all of the criteria my special person loves about quilts. A variety of fabrics, lots of pieces and colorful. I still have the templates I drafted - it just might be my next project.
Here are a few of the fussy cut stars.
Stripes are fun to play with.
I've added plenty to the stash, so no problem there.
It will be a nice machine piecing project in between all of my hand work projects.
Maybe fewer pinks and florals this time.
Although, when fussy cut - not all flowers 'read' as floral.
Even if the paisleys are not always as symmetrical as one would like - visually, they can still be interesting.
I'm not signing up for perfection.
I prefer interesting.
I really do love this. I've talked myself into it.
No commitment to a completion date.
I'll be taking liberties with the fussy cutting again.
Using more indigo, stripes and geometric prints, or so I think.
The colors and prints will be a welcome variety!
Yesterday I was gifted with some fantastic fabrics from a special person - let the cutting begin!!
Hope you are up to some fun in your sewing room today.
