Back in March, Julie from jaybirdquilts, hosted a Hexagon Quilt-Along. At that time, I wasn’t ready to jump into another big project, but knew it would be something I’d try at some point. About a week ago I was going through the stash looking for something or other, and came across a bundle of fabrics I’d won from an Art Gallery giveaway. Pat Bravo has designed some beautiful fabrics!
I only used two of the blocks that Julie made. These are fun blocks to make and her directions are crystal clear! I used this ruler and it worked great.

You’re not supposed to sew the two halves of the blocks together to avoid “Y” seams. I was having trouble moving them around, so I basted them with my Brother’s special super nifty basting stitch. Much better!
I haven’t played with the design at all. I just pinned them up there as they were sewn. To be honest, I’m just not happy with the fabric/pattern combination. There isn’t any one fabric in the group that makes everything mesh, although this isn’t the entire line. So I need to do a little digging and find a fabric that pulls it all together.
What are you up to? Staying cool, I hope:) 101 F here yesterday according to Weather.com!
