So, it’s 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, and I completely forgot until about about 3 minutes ago that I need to do a WIP Wednesday post. : ) I guess between the three-day weekend, my daughter’s first day of school (Tuesday), and my obsession with getting blue dye out of my hexy quilt, I completely lost track of what day it was. So, I am thoroughly unprepared this week, and this post will be light on content. But hopefully still heavy on the linky goodness. Bear with me.
Do. Good Stitches Hexy Quilt – Yeah! Finished it. But it was not without its, um, challenges. You can read all about it here.

So this is obviously going to be taking up a lot of my time in the month of September. I have until September 30 to design 5-8 supporting prints for my focus print. I decided to begin the process by making a few changes to the focal. I tightened up the design elements, eliminating some of the negative space (click here to see the old version, for comparison’s sake). I also worked on the color palette, because I wasn’t happy with the palette in the original version. I tried out probably 10 or 15 different palettes before finally settling on this one. I’m still not sure I’m 100% thrilled with this, but I do think I’m on the right track. So at this point I’m going to start working on the secondary designs and see how/if the palette develops.
And have you checked out my Facebook page? There will be more about my design process showing up there, if you’re interested. You can also find a shot of the focal print in repeat, as it would look on a fat quarter, which helps put the scale in perspective.
