Today I took a quilt class, a pattern called "One Block Wonder". It was great, of course there will be lots of sewing to do to get the quilt completed, but today we got a lot done.
We started with fabric and pinned 6 layers together. I've had this fabric for a while, the class instructor, Klara, helped me choose the right kind of fabric almost a year ago. Other people in the class had asian fabrics, fruit and vegetable-themed fabric... lots of variety. I liked the red and green in this one.
After the 6-layer stack of fabric was pinned, we cut strips, and then cut the strips into 60-degree triangles. You can see the stack of triangles on the left of the picture.
And then, voila! Putting the triangles together makes an amazing little kaleidoscope pattern, in a hexagon shape.
This is going to be a beautiful quilt.
