I'm trying to get this finished well ahead of the Dec. 15 deadline (because I have a million Christmas gifts to make.)
Got the top pieced!
I've asked my partner if (s)he would prefer a hexagon shaped pillow, or for me to square it up. I can't decide which I'd like to do more.
This was my starting stack of fabric.
I used a design idea from Material Obsession 2, ordered the template from here, and got busy.
It was my first time doing set-in seams, and they went really well thankfully.
You can kind of see in this picture, each of the sixty degree triangles are make up of thirds. Then it's just about rearranging (I think I rearranged for over an hour, and have a nice stack of those little pieces cut in a spare box... waiting for me)
I do think it's funny that both my pillow talks so far have been in the orange and grey color scheme... I think it's quite popular these days.
Oh, and in case my partner doesn't respond -- what say you all? Keep it a hexie, or square it up?
