Instead I decided to go with negative space. Now, negative space is quiet, calm, collected. Neutral. Not like me at all. I am definitely not quiet, calm or collected, nor I like to think negative. I am however drawn to negative space. It was the use of it in modern quilting that helped drew me back to sewing.
I loved this 1950s style Japanese kokka fabric by ayumil I first saw in Susan's A Canadian Abroad's blog and ig feed.
It is called light hearted fabric and I loved and ordered it from the Village Haberdashery. Without wanting to be too influenced by Susan, it just did lend itself to hexies.
