Protecting Peewee

A couple months ago I bought a fat quarter pack from Quilters Corner in Ithaca, NY (  For some unknown reason I was drawn to this grouping of taupes.  In the end, I used only four of the six fabrics.  As you may have been able to tell from prior quilts, I LOVE high contrast.  So what is wrong with this picture?  (That's a rhetorical question--there is nothing wrong with this picture--it's just very low contrast!)

The entire piece is only 16.5 x 17.5, including borders.  Each hexagon finishes at 1.5 inches per side.  There are half, corner and side hexagons to make the piece "square" again.  And borders.

There's Peewee!  I had the title not long after I started cutting the fabric.  I cut a lot of hexagons of many fabrics until I found just the right combination.

See the birds around the center?  Ever-watchful of Peewee.

Here's the piece from the back.  Carefully pressed and trimmed to reduce bulk and prevent shadowing.

This will be a class for both shops and guilds in 2013.  I will be updating the website soon to include this full day class.  Then you too can claim a finished hexagon this lifetime!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and traveled safely.  

Blissful hugs,
