I have been away on vacation to Sutton, Quebec on a ski getaway. We enjoyed staying at a cosy chalet slope side and although I did not ski, I did enjoy pondering my current hexi project and designing a new block.
I missed out on my Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday posts and so I thought I would share my newest drafting (while on vacation) and what I call "Quilters Zen Doodling". The block below was basically a hexi with shapes drawn into it in a duplicate manner so that the "isosceles triangles" (all sides equal) would create a kaleidoscope with colours inspired by fireworks.
- The connecting corners for this block could be done in a consistent neutral (black, grey, white or bright neutral) to create a secondary pattern.
- Or you could simply connect the hexies!
- You could also cut each shape out of card stock or template material and English Paper Piece this to make a very dynamic block.
- Really the colour possibilities are so endless.
If your New Years Fireworks inspire you, I encourage you to send us pics of the blocks you design or create. I will share with our readers.
I hope everyone enjoys a Healthy and Happy New Year and may all your goals for 2016 be achieved!!
