I made my fabric selections for the next round of hexagons for my Rosette 2 in Katja Marek's The New Hexagon Quilt Along. Rosette 3 is now available so I had better get #2 finished!
So what should I add to my little wren in the middle of the block?
I want to add warm tones so I've picked four fabric that I think work well with the wren and this is what I came up with. The blue flower picks up on the blue in the wren's background and the bands at the top and bottom have some of those warm caramel colours I so love. The band at the bottom was fussy cut so that the rust is at the bottom and the taupe at the top. The cream pieces on the sides are also fussy cut but the top band isn't but it will work just fine!
Need some proof that it will work fine? Well here it is! I am always amazed at the secondary designs that appear with a little fussy cutting. Look at the partial stars that are created by the cream fabric!
So what's next? I have to make five hexagons so I'll start pulling fabrics for cutting, basting and sewing!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
