I’ve been working a little each night on finishing up the blocks for my new hexagon quilt and tonight I finished the last four blocks.
The photo above was taken this morning when I got up and saw the light coming through the blinds and hitting these amazing fabrics on my design wall.
I’ve been moving blocks around my design wall for weeks now. Every time I add new blocks I have to redo the entire thing. When I added the last blocks tonight, I spent another hour moving blocks around, taking photos, tweaking, taking black and white photos, tweaking… But I think I’ve finally hit on the right arrangement.
And now that I post this picture I can see something that needs to be fixed…. the two blocks immediately under the center red block are too similar… it really shows in the black and white version. ARGHHHHH!
A couple of days ago I had to make a decision about what I was going to do with the top and bottom ends of the second and fourth vertical rows. I have the choice of adding sections of grey, or partial blocks to fill in that space. I decided to go with the partial blocks… they just feel more finished that the large sections of grey.
Next up is to start making final decisions about the grey triangles fabric and placement. I have one more piece of fabric I want to buy to see how it works before I start down this road. I’ll purchase the fabric on Saturday.
I can’t tell you how much I’ve been loving putting the fabrics together for these blocks. Each combination is more amazing than the last. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to give this quilt away!
