New to me
This pattern is called Hollow Cube. I saw a picture on a website and it intrigued me. When you break down the pattern is it simply a hexagon or baby blocks. I tried to draft it in my EQ6 but I'm not as proficient as I would like to be so I hauled out the old 1/4 inch graph paper and got to work. I used some of those techniques we were taught in Algebra and said we'd never use in real life....you math people know what I mean. Anyway, it is actually bigger than I would like it to be but I got it figured out. I will probably redraft it in a smaller size since this one is way too large....I like smaller "squares". The placement of the colours creates the dimensional look. It was fun to do once I figured out my measurements were just a little off...I know, I know...".measure twice and cut once". I won't make a full quilt but I would like a wall hanging...scrappy , of course.
