This is my ongoing project with blue, green and black scraps. I’ve done some blocks the last week, and like to show you all.
Here is how I do it. First I cut paper templates. Then I cut the fabrics about 1/4″ outside the edges of the paper. I sew the fabric around the paper, but do not sew through. That way I can use the paper again and again, as long as the shape is good. The edges of the hexagon templates are 1″.
At last I make a block out of four half hexagons, as you can see in the last picture, and join the block to the quilt as I like the colours to be. Gives me a sort of a chevron pattern, and I’ve never seen anybody else doing it this way. Have you?
I’ve thought about making the colours the opposite way, the blue and green in the middle. Think that would have given me a butterfly row instead of a black zigzag. I have to try that next time.
