If you look closely at the diagram you can see I will need twelve strips made of four hexagons and eight curved units made of three hexagons. This is what they will look like. I've given careful consideration to the placement of the hexagons so that there is some flow to the red vines. For the post part they move horizontally. Taking this extra time has produced better results.
I will sew these units and then I plan to add to them. They will eventually become the final border but I am making it off the quilt. Once it is constructed I will sew it to the medallion. This final round will include some of the hexagon rosettes I've made. I'll need ten pairs of rosettes and they are ready and waiting!
I had mentioned that there are a lot of red rosettes in the pile and I'm trying to expand the colour palette to give more variety. This one still has some reds and pinks but the aqua will be a nice addition. I love fussy cuts, even if they are just the middle of the rosette. They add pizzazz!
Time to get going so until I post again, happy sewing!
This is going to be so cool when you finish. You've got a really great mix of fabrics playing together with interesting prints. Nice fussy cutting, by the way. :)ReplyDelete
Your rosettes are just so pretty. I love that you are using red. That is one of my favorite colors. I love the medallion. It is going to be a stunning quilt.ReplyDelete
Your attention to detail (the vines) really adds to your design, Karen. Looking forward to the next installment.ReplyDelete
