I’m selecting the “path” fabric for my new hexie project. I think I know which one I’m going with, but wonder what you think. The fabrics are Primitive Muslin for moda.
I ordered these half-yard cuts from the Fat Quarter Shop Friday morning. They arrived this afternoon. I couldn’t have expected them any sooner.
Here are two more Primitive Muslins along with the other four. I picked up these fat quarters at the Mid-Atlantic show. They are called Honey and Brown Sugar. They are darker than they look in this photo and I'm not considering them. The honey is too golden and the Brown Sugar too dark. I have to admit I’m swayed by these names. They also come in Walnut and Raven.
I want to select the “path” fabric early in the project. I tend to get bored working with one fabric and since I will need a lot of these hexies to make the path I want to work on them as I work on the flowers. That was where my grandmother’s flower garden in the 30’s repros went awry. I had done most of the flowers and then started the green path (zzzzzzzz....) and didn’t get far before I decided to applique the flowers to a background fabric.
libbyQ and I have been discussing our hexie projects. I’m so glad she told me about using the ladder stitch instead of a whipstitch. The ladder stitches are almost invisible. It's a new stitch to me so I'm hoping my stitches will become totally invisible with more practice. Thanks, libbyQ!
I just posted on The Jubilee Quilt Project blog.
