Your hollow cubes are so darn cute that I just had to try a few. Working with getting a decent light, med, and dark. It seems to look different when you get the block together.
They. Look. Awesome!
They *are* like eating potato chips, aren't they?
Oh no Lynne just followed Pirate down the rabbit hole. Love your blocks.............I have been looking at them too :)
Yeah, it's gonna get crowded down there, isn't it?
Thanks! Yes, they are like eating chips. They aren't quite as hard as they look and it is fun trying to choose the colors. I sure have made a disaster of my bin of brights. Oh well, needed to organize it anyway.
Come on down--bet you can't make just one.
and don't forget ... you don't need to keep it monochromatic! I chose that because 1) I had seen an example and that's what tempted me but also 2) it made picking fabrics easier in a way.
However, if you choose different colored fabrics, it can make picking the contrast easier because you don't always have the best dark/med/light in one color family, whereas, you CAN get that contrast with different colors.
Just tryin' to help out, you understand. :-)
Pirate's ship is now called "The Enabler".
I haven't followed Pirate down the rabbit hole of hexie tumblers but I did decide to give a hexie snowflake pattern a second try. I'm working with dime size hexies and it's so easy basting with thread the way Pirate showed. Years ago I tried glue basting, what a mess.
Always glad to get some help! Thought I would start out with monochromatic but you are right about the contrast issues. Seems like when you are working on teh block right in front of your nose I don't really see the hollow part until I pull away from it. I spotted some nice bright prints that should offer more contrast so they will be the next ones to play.
