My Westering Women block for October - I wanted to emphasize the star points, and have them light colored. Then I thought I needed a bright fabric for contrast, so the little lattice print came in to the mix, and seemed to want to be in small pieces.
The last hexathon block was a complicated one and I only need 25 blocks for my setting. These are my final three. You get a sneak peak at my setting fabric with a couple of these - I used these as "leaders and enders" for the Westering Women block, forgetting that I hadn't photographed all the blocks yet. (The setting fabric on the lower left corner of this one is not yet sewn on, but the block looked sad with a missing corner.) The hand-dyed fabric is from Vicki Welsh.
I used foundation paper piecing for this block - this set of gradient hand-dyes is also from Vicki.
And my final block - I should try to fix a couple of those Y-seams. I was running low at this point in the Hexathon! But I love the combination of Vicki's shibori dyed points and the commercial batik.
With a jump start on the setting of these, I should have this colorful little quilt put together soon. The Westering Women quilt has two more blocks to go and I don't have a setting plan for them. My Civil War quilt blocks have been finished for over a year and I do have a setting design and all the fabric purchased. I just haven't had the motivation to see that quilt finished?
