Glenys popped in the other evening to show me her latest work - we are both doing the Material Obsession BOM "40 Shades of Grey" quilt. She said Block 3 took ages to do and, because of the size of the hexi's, she couldn't really watch T.V. as well as hand piecing -they really were quite fiddily. Once each teeny tiny hexi was completed, they were hand stitched onto the black/purple spot circle, and then.. machine appliqued onto a colourful circle, and then...onto a light white/grey background square.
The teeny tiny hexi's are so small, & so v. cute!!
They look great surrounded with the "filler" black/grey spot & light grey HST pieces don't they?
Motivated by all her progress, I made a start on Month 4 BOM today which was waiting for me when I got home from holiday. (I have sorted fabrics ready for Month 3 hexi's, BUT haven't quite got around to sitting down & making them all yet...so am skipping onto the next block. Don't want to get too far behind.)
We are using a grey/black spot fabric that will hopefully link everything together, but we each have a different spot for this. Looking at the pics now, I can see that the spot fabric certainly makes all the other fabrics "pop"!!!!
So here's what I have done so far, plus a close up of todays "flower basket".
