wip

What do they call this?  eye-candy?  a stack of 6 inch pre-cut hexigons . . . 




 . . . randomly sewn together.  How easy is that?




. . . pretty fun actually, till it comes to sewing the rows together.  Then, it gets pretty tedious.




 Marking the corners as instructed with the provided template does help . . . trust me.



I'm not sure about it . . . but I'll keep going.



And then last night, for some random reason, I decided it was time to break into my coveted, secretly protected, untouched, highly invested in, Heather Ross fabrics that have been stored in a cool, dry place.  Maybe it's because I was looking at her new book coming out soon.






I wanted this museum print so bad, I had 3 family members bidding on it during a vacation.  It cost me our grocery budget for the week.




I have a whole pinterest board with HR pins of fun small pieced quilts but most of them take away from her artistic designs.









Then, when I recently saw this quilt that I made several years back, I realized it would make a fun HR quilt, show-casing her designs. 


So, those are my wip for this week.  Do you have any projects you've made with Heather's fabrics?

  2. Lovely idea for your HR stash. The Hexies look good - it will be worth it in the end!

  3. Your hexies are looking great! Yes, it is a bit tedious... But, you will be sew pleased with the results and soon forget about the pain! About the Heather Ross fabrics... I totally agree. Some prints are not meant to be cut into tiny little pieces!

  4. I've never really seen much Heather Ross fabric... I think I might have a scrap with some frogs on it. But those prints you have are simply luverly! I can't decide which one I like best, but those fishies in bag are definitely in the running!

  5. The hexies are looking great. I did a hexie project too but mine weren't at all random. They can be tedious but so worth it in the end
