I didn't get this one started on New Year's Eve like I thought I would but it was started on New Year's Day instead. Good grief, these blocks are big!
I had to lay out the whole block (actually 4 blocks according to the book) to make sure I had values distributed well.
Each color block is 28" x 24" so maybe I will just stay with the 9 colors like the book.
I need to cut the rest of the green pieces and definitely need a lot of different values as these are all too much alike.
In my effort to throw away 14 items a day, I came across this, an envelope with plastic templates and 2 hexie flowers from around 1975-77. I was one of the first quilting teachers in my area during the revival of quilting at the bicentennial (1976). There were very few quilt shops at that time and most just used a small corner for classes. I made these for a demonstration of English Paper Piecing (EPP). They are ugly, outdated, but part of the history of my teaching career. I gave my first quilt class in 1975 and my first program and workshops for a quilt guild in 1987. No, I didn't throw them away.
