I mentioned in a recent post that I still feel like quite the beginner at this hexie business. I don't seem to be able to get a vision in my head of how a design will look when duplicated in 4s or 8s. Take a look at what I mean.
These two pictures are the same 4 pieces just places two different ways. When I cut them out, I was thinking about the top picture being the one I would want. That design seemed to offer the most interest. After putting them side-by-side in both directions, however, I find that I prefer the bottom picture, as it creates a much more interesting design with the darker browns. Isn't that surprising? It is this ability to "envision" how these units will look when sewn together that I lack at this stage of my learning. Perhaps this will become easier to see as time goes along. I sure hope so.
Do any of you hexie girls have any encouragement for me??
Happy Quilting, Friends!
