Hello! What an exciting couple of weeks! I hope you all enjoyed the blog tour and met some new friends. I am overwhelmed by the fantastic response, and wanted to thank each of you who participated in the tour, by writing posts, commenting on the blogs, following on Facebook and Instagram. . . you guys rock!
Design Possibilities with Adventures in Hexagons
In case you missed the Instagram takeover, I wanted to share one image of a class plan I developed for use with Adventures in Hexagons. It’s called Hello, Rosy. If you’re a shop owner, you can find the directions for this wallhanging on the C&T website. If you’re a quilter, please ask about it at your favorite local quilt store.
Also, here’s a fun little quilt I made to show how easy it is to change the scale of the quilts presented in the book. It’s called mini-Starburst. I made it following the layout diagrams for the Starburst quilt featured on the cover of the book, but using two alternate blocks. This pattern is not included in the book, however, a layout diagram for it is featured in the Design Primer. I won’t say this was a quick finish, but it kept me busy during lots of volleyball practices and piano lessons!
At the start of the tour, I mentioned a freebie pattern for a block that works with all the others in Adventures in Hexagons. It’s called Sea Star, and you can download it by signing up for my newsletter, on the right side of this page.
Stay tuned for more Adventures!
Seeing everyone’s perspectives on Adventures in Hexagons has been so much fun! I just don’t want the party to end with the blog tour. So I’ve created a special facebook page for the book. Please like and follow to share in even more Adventures! I’m planning a Loverly quilt along, starting in September, so you have plenty of time to get the book before it starts. We will be sharing tips and progress photos during the quilt-a-long on Facebook and Instagram, but you’ll be able to get all the information about the project right here on the blog. Here’s a sneak peek of one of the color options I’m working on for the quilt-a-long:
