This quilt features three of the four shapes that the Hex N More Ruler can cut. The Jewel, the Half Hex & the Triangle.
This is the quilt I was working on a few weeks ago when I showed some sneak peeks of The Birds & The Bees over on Instagram.
If you look closely in this sneak peek you can actually see the Wonton quilt top coming together in the fourth photo.
I used my iPhone to capture my process while working on Wonton. This collage shows fabric selection to completed quilt top... and they are all from the same day! I love when I can get a quilt top done in a day.
I don't have too many outtakes from the cover photo shoot. I knew I wanted a simple background for the cover so that the quilt would pop. I took about 40+ photos of the quilt on different grassy areas... they all look pretty similar!!
I tried adding flowers... but they weren't adding anything to the look of the cover.
I snapped a few detail shots and I was done!
