So, right now I guess the blogging thing just isn't for me. I can't explain why, but when I think about writing a blog post I feel stressed and nervous. I don't know about you, but I personally don't like to feel stressed and nervous. So I'm not going to think about writing blog posts anymore, at least for a while. Which sucks, because I was so excited about how cool my blog was going to be. Mayhaps I'll try again in a few months.

A few months ago, the internet was awash with awesome pieced hexagon quilts, thanks to the Hexagon Quilt-Along over at jaybirdquilts.com.
Of course I signed up, and I decided to use my Kona brights roll-up, but even though this design was super easy, I managed to get sidetracked (as usual) and my hexies got forgotten for a while. Here’s how far I got:
Well I was looking at quilt pics (fabric porn) on Flickr recently, and came across this unique and lovely quilt.
The dark & light brown combo gives it such a funky, retro look, don’t you think? I’d love to add a similar dark & light brown double sashing to my hexagons so they can be retro-funky too.
Figuring out how to add sashing to hexagons is a challenge, but I’m determined to make it happen. Let me know if you have any advice!

Hi out there. I'm Larissa, and this is my shiny new blog, Cotton Sunrise. I’m a maker of fabric things, and I’m very excited to get started on this journal of my projects and inspirations.
