Westering Women

Aaargh, I'm having such a challenging time with Windows 10 this week!!!   It's almost enough to put me off of blogging altogether.  Sorry for the poor picture quality today - my devices are not playing nicely together!

Another month gone by, and a new block for
Barbara Brackman's
series.  The Platte River block reminds us of the significance of waterways on the Oregon Trail.

Morris Hexathon

Our latest block for Barbara Brackman's
is Camelot Star.



These hexies are working up nicely for me so far, although I'm sure they will get more difficult as the series goes on.

Morris Hexathon

This week's hexie block, Crystal Palace, is named for the amazing building which housed the Great London Exhibition of 1851
An easy one to cut and piece!

Morris Hexathon

I'm off and running (haha) with
Barbara Brackman's new weekly sew-along study series,
 
This week's history lesson and pattern are: 

The star is reminiscent of mosaic tile floors found in Westminster Abbey.

It is my plan to make two hexie blocks each week.  I'm going to use earth tones, some of which are from Brackman's Morris Earthly Paradise fabric line.  I'm anticipating handpiecing because of the non-standard angles, especially as the blocks become more complicated.
