Helen loves to create simple modern quilts and this has an amazing 3 D effect without a Y seam involved.
In these two quilts Helen has used Oakshott fabrics to great effect to create the 3D illusion; you need to think about the tonal/colour value of your fabrics against each other – i.e. light, medium and dark within a colour range.
Helen shares with us how to strip piece (and save fabric) when creating the section of the hexagon and rather than get involved in all that ‘Y’seam nonsense, shares with us her clever idea of building the quilt in strips of half-hexagons.
