And I’m still just making my ‘petals’! So I have NOT posted – but now I feel I must make an accounting of myself! Not long ago someone posted their Hexagon Project Box. Last weekend I covered a Cream Cheese box and thought of putting pens in it. Then it occurred to me….Hexagon or ‘Petal’ box!!!
so here I’ll show my new little pretty box. I do apologize for not being a better photographer…..
Now here is my ‘Petal’ collection to date:
These are the neutrals……I don’t really like brown and beige all that much…….
These are patterned fabric ‘petals’ – mostly from my scrap bag.
This is my little box a Purplish ‘Petals’ I definitely need more of these, I LOVE purple!
These are my warms and my cools.
And lastly these are my greens in lite, medium and dark……that will be employed in my project of my mind!
just to refresh the memories of anyone interested: this is a small mock-up of what I’m trying to accomplish…..a color wash perhaps of lite to dark green background hexies with flowers of different colors running throughout. This photo is just a small sample of what I’m trying to make. When I really make the project it will be much larger and go from very light greens to very dark greens gradually across the quilt on the diagonal. I am in the process of amassing as many green ‘petals’ in all shades of green as I possibly can for extreme diversity and scrappiness. Also what I want is dark flowers on the light green part – medium shade flowers on the medium green part and then light flowers on the dark green part. Oh I sure hope I’m making myself clear, ‘cuz I’m not too sure if I am!!
