Upcoming Program Night...
Venessa Saucier will teach the 3D Hexagon Quilt block she learned from a free tutorial on Pinterest created by: Sewn Up, Theresadownunder, mypatchwork.wordpress.com.
Supplies for this program:
• 3 pairs of strips of fabric 2-1/2” x width of fabric (or 42”)
To achieve the 3D effect, you’ll need to select fabric by value:
Strip Pair one: medium + dark
Strip Pair two: medium + light
Strip Pair three: dark + light
• Ruler w/ 60-degree line -or- 60-degree triangle
• Rotary cutter, sewing machine, thread
You can pick dark, med, & light shades of same color or you can mix & match complementary colors. It’s up to you. Value is the most important.
