If you are new to my blog, Ahhhh hexies come out every other Thursday. You can find the first 30 up under the EPP button; and we have around 80 or so that we MIGHT do. Might being dependent upon how hard some of these are!
Today's Ahhhh is a Jinny Beyer design. This woman makes some tough designs. I need to google and see if she has made them into quilts!! In fact a good portion of these tough ones are all hers. I have yet to decide if I am breaking copyright by sharing these. I found them in one of her block books. Anyone have any idea about that? If we are then there will be a dozen or more that we won't be doing--but as I said they are very hard ones to say the least!
An angel friend of mine sent me some Jinny Beyer fabrics. I've been wanting some just for Ahhhhs so I am thrilled. I used some for today's Ahhhh in fact:
Oh Mercy NO! I didn't get it finished. It will hopefully look very cool when it is done though.
Here goes and good luck!
A note about my drawings for you new comers.
I draw all of mine in markers for your benefit,
but markers are NOT accurate enough.
You need to draw your block using a very fine point pencil.
The next step has to be drawn with precision accuracy.
Even though I drew mine in pencil before using marker,
they didn't work out so well for me and have to be re-cut
(because it is hard to see through marker lines sometimes.)
This next step is why my Ahhhh still sits un-finished.
There are a whole lot of extra lines that will need ignored on today's ahhhh.
It is best if I color this one in for you as well:
For this next step below (in green) I cut mine apart so that I could fussy cut some mirror image type fabric,
but you could leave it as one piece I am sure.
Very cool, not too hard except those little orange points.
