some would call it working in a series...
for me, it's just being single-minded
nothing else can get in
right now it's hexagons
this was the first effort at a "sky" block for my latest project
the hexagon suits my idea of a sky shape so i basted this block of various blues
using pre-cut paper shapes as a guide to cut roughly cut the fabric pieces using only scissors
i thought about cutting up some of my snippet cloth for a hexagon
but i couldn't quite bring myself to do it, not yet
so i did the next best thing...
i sewed snippets to my hexagons!
and i love them... absolutely love them
i think i could be addicted to making them
i'm going to add some hand embroidery to these
and some other interesting techniques for adding texture to paper
figuring out ways to layer them
they're like building blocks...
pretty building blocks for playing with, and creating the day away
