I have decided to make a quilt for my bed. It will be based on the idea of a sampler quilt so that my teacher, Grace from Material Obsession, can help me with some of the different techniques. She always has great ideas and hints for short cuts. I am going to get ideas from some of my Japanese Quilt books. I want to do some of the tiny blocks and piece them together at the end so I am sort of designing my own original quilt. This is my first block- 3/4 inch hexes. I love them and couldn't stop making them as they are so fun. The idea is to use the many fabrics in this first block in the others, along with lots of linen. I love linen and colour!!
