Fall has definitely arrived! It has turned much cooler this weekend and we even had a brief moment of snow yesterday. I have been making slow progress on my Brinton Hall quilt while hubby and I have watched TV.
Here is a very bad photo of a photo of the original in Quiltmania magazine.
This came out back in May. Part One consisted of the center with the hexies and appeared in Issue 107. Even though I am no where close to being ready, I have been waiting for Part Two in Issue 108. Last week, I received Issue 109. Hmmmmm……I contacted the publisher and they agreed to extend my subscription but said they could not send Issue 108. I was really bummed at first. I know I could get a copy of this from a friend who is much farther along than I am! But I have decided to use this as a design opportunity. I honestly would not have done those clamshells anyway! I’m not sure where this quilt will take me and that is rather exciting. So many possibilities!
I will be taking this with me this week so I need to get some more hexies prepared to take. I’m looking forward to digging into my scraps for this.
I’ve also been looking through this book.
It is making me want to load up some more practice fabric to play! She has some great design ideas here. One thing that bothers me, she doesn’t clearly indicate starting and stopping points. I find that a bit frustrating.
Have a wonderful day!
