so, when i started this project, and cutting out fabric, i was kind of all over the place. i didn’t know what i was going to make. but as i’ve refined, and pulled more fabrics (and realized i needed to do two of each), i went back and recut a 2nd of some of those first ones. then it all kind of morphed into color groupings. there’s shots on my instagram– but for some reason, after i got through those first few randoms, i decided i wanted to do all the purples first. i don’t know why. i’ve never particularly loved purple…but there were so many fabrics in this stack i was drawn to.
so we’ll be well and truly into the purples going forward. this first one is barely on the scope of purple. it’s almost a red grey. as with most of them- i love it. i’ve been interested to see how making these into flowers (vs just hexies) would change my liking of the fabrics. nothing’s changed. so far any fabric has looked great as a hexie, and any of the hexies have looked great into flowers. i thought after they got into flowers, i’d maybe want to rework with more fussy cuts, but so far, no.
