Another collection due out shortly is Glimma by Lotta Jansdotter, also for Windham fabrics. I am such a fan of Lotta and her scandinavian minimalism design. I especially love those trees. I’m thinking these will need to be part of a new bag, similar to my Bella bag from last spring.
Finally, I got my first up close and personal look at Moda’s new Honeycomb precuts. Can I say, brilliant? These are laser cut (meaning straight, non-fraying edges) 6″ (from point to opposite point) hexagons. They come in a stacks of 40 and you can get them in one solid color or in prints by collection, like charm packs. They are so neato.
The coolest part is that each stack of honeycombs comes with a sturdy plastic template with little holes at each point.
These holes can be used for quickly marking the 1/4″ point where you will start and stop your Y-seams when you piece your hexagons. (For a great machine-piecing-hexagons tutorial, visit Kati). SO COOL.
