Framgangsmåte/tutorial

Jeg har laget dette mønsteret selv, og fått mye positiv respons på det. Her er framgangsmåten, dersom det er noen som har lyst til å prøve seg på denne. Metoden som er brukt er engelsk papirsøm, altså håndsøm over papir, halve sekskanter i valgfri størrelse.

I made this pattern myself, and I've got great response from many quilters around. Here is a short tutorial if you like to give it a try. I've used English paper piecing, that is all hand sewn, half hexagons, size of your own choice.

















I denne har jeg brukt forskjellige svarte, blå og grønne stoffer. Da fikk jeg en siksakbord i blått/grønt og en bord med spisser i svart. Jeg fant ut at dersom jeg snudde på fargene, kunne det komme til å ligne på sommerfugler. Det har jeg gjort i neste arbeid. Ser dere sommerfuglene?

I've used different black, blue and green fabrics, and got a chevron border with black in the middle. I found that if I changed the colours a bit, it would be like butterflies. I've done that in my next work.  Can see the butterflies?



















Jeg lar bildene tale for seg selv. Så får du studere dem og spørre om det er noe du ikke forstår.

I let the pictures speek for themselves. You may study them, and ask me if you don't understand.





















































En blokk/one block











Syr blokkene sammen til rader og derette radene sammen slik du ser på bildet.

I join the blocks into rows, and then I sew the rows together the way you can see in this pictures.














Det blir en skrå kant nederst som du må kutte til sist. Denne kan syes ensfarget også, slik at du slipper å kutte sommerfuglene.






  
 You have to adjust the ends. But you may make a solid block so that you don't have to cut the butterflies.

Håper dette kan inpirere noen til å prøve. Vil gjerne vite det om du gjør det.

Hope this can inspire you to try. I would be happy to know if you did.

  1. Interesting design (and great fabric choice) made only with half hexagons; I thought that triangles are involved too; thank you for the tutorial and inspiration.

  14. The butterfly arrangement is so clever! Do you have to bend the papers to get some of the sides lined up right? dezertsuz at gmail

  17. thank you for this tutorial on your "Butterfly" hexagon design. I really love it and may have to begin (oh no not another one lol) one for myself. I have only done whole hexagons before now (my Monet's city" was strip pieced before cutting. I am going to baste some more right now...I just love these two quilts of yours...hugs, Julierose
