Hexagons Made Easy Wallhanging
Hexagons Hexagons Hexagons
I have a friend who is looking for a couple quilts to showcase some amazing machine quilting. So… um… yea, I’ll get in on that. She is the amazing machine quilter at Nacho Mama’s Quilt blog.
Well, there is lots of asymmetry, lots of negative space, and not so much “folk” elements (like blanket stitched hand applique shapes). That pretty much says modern to me.
The fabrics in the wall hanging are by Denyse Schmidt for Joanns.
First, I applied the facings to the hexagons, as described in Hexagons Made Easy & pressed my shapes. Then I arranged them & pinned them in place.
Next up – straight stitch machine applique.
Of course, it needs a quick trip to the iron, but this is the finished composition. The wall hanging is about 40″ square. I will not be quilting this myself, so I cannot wait to see what Danielle @ Nacho Mama Quilts will turn this into. Stay tuned. There’s plenty of space for something amazing.
The small wall hanging isn’t too jazzy yet, but it is designed for the quilting to really make it spectacular. Just trust me on this one… =)
