Moda has a brand new fabric cut called Honeycombs. They are hexagons perfect for making a quilt like “Sunshine Box” from my book “Scrappy Fireworks“.
I am going to have Honeycombs from my new fabric collection “Hope Chest” to be released at Spring Market 2013 and I can’t wait to play with them in my quilts!
One way to do so is to fold them in half…
…then fold one side in…
…then fold the opposite side in.
Voila, you have prairie points from Honeycombs!
I discovered this idea from one of my visits to the Grand Rapids Museum.
I love the prairie point on this antique quilt, they look so sharp and went great with the 60 degree diamonds.
I could not stop investigating and sure enough they were made from hexagons, not squares like you would normally make them from.
No matter how you use your Honeycombs, I’m sure you will enjoy them!
I better get back to my sewing, Henry is redesigning and really enjoying scraps to the fullest. I don’t get designing help like this everyday – I better take advantage of it!
Remember to stop back soon, Moda’s Blog Hop starts tomorrow, Feb 18 – Mar 4th.
