Like every January, once I finished what I had in progress, I sat, in depression, having lost every bit of creative moxie that I had. And like every other January, I looked for a mindless pattern or technique, and some bright coloured fabric so that I could climb back out of my depression.
This year I chose a technique … ‘stack and whack’ … ‘one block wonder’ … it goes by many names.
Basically, it just involves selecting a printed fabric and stacking six repeats of the fabric on top of each other. Precisely. The you just cut six exactly the same pieces of fabric to arrange into hexagons.
I added lots of solid hexagons to my version, using a Free Spirit solid in a cranberry-ish colour. My Granddaughter, Anna, selected the colour. Left to me, I’d have used black, which might not have lifted my funk!
The floral is a Kaffe Fassett design, from Westminster Fabrics. There is a large piece of what remained on the back of the quilt.
I’m pretty happy with the end result
