Slightly out of my comfort zone I have pieced together a Scottish hillside landscape! Well that's what it is meant to be...
I have never done curved free piecing like this before and I have to report that it was a lot easier than I had thought! There may be more of this in the future though I will probably try a more abstract version next.
I have since added some water and a bridge although those elements still need a bit of stitching - this is another overdue Star of Africa bee block. There will also be a castle! I promise!
I seem to have a bad case of startitis at the moment so I thought maybe I should just start all the bee blocks I need to do and see how it goes.
Glad to have got this one started as I have been a bit scared of it and now have found out that I needn't have been!
This next pic shows one of my startitis projects
I have even finished the half hexy ball so all I need to do is the background and I could have a finished top! First I have to see if I can buy it from my local fabric store!
This is what I hope it will look like when finished - minus that errant white hexy of course!
Since starting this project I have also been mesmerised by the Kona classic hexies - I just love that you get the close shading of bright colours. There is more of course...
Did I say I've never managed to make a quilt with just solids? Could this be the one?
I am being very pretentious and thinking of calling this one mycelium!
Just because it reminds me of this...
One up on big hexy balls don't you think?
