All last year, I worked on a new hexagon every week. (nearly) Even though I am a few behind, I started Katja's next project : A Hexabet of Alphagons.
This quilt will consist of the alphabet, and the numbers 0 to 9
I'm thinking scrappy, but monochromatic too.
Sewing samples for the Moda club each month results in tons of scraps. The other day I came across this scrap quilt on I'm a Ginger Monkey. Much like the Granny Square craze, I imagine this will sweep across blogland too! I checked out the tutorial, and made a block right away.
For the second block, I eliminated the black and chose a bit brighter palette.
I'm hooked. This is probably more like the colours I will choose. The block is fast and fun to make. Pretty much any fabrics will work in this quilt. I think I will spend today happily going through my scrap bins and seeing how far I will get on my own Trip Around the World.
I only made one New Years resolution : eat less, sew more...........
