I've caught the Hexagon bug !

August 27, 2014 1 Comment

After much resistance, I have finally caught the bug ! The Hexagon bug. I have been busy making these little darlings at night while sitting relaxing at night in front of the telly. I love how you can make the fabrics come alive and take on a whole new look. It gives a new meaning to stripes and linear fabrics.. I am looking at fabric a whole new way and find there are more fabrics that I just have to have haha all I see is how it would look great in a hexagon. Is that sad....... no not at all ! I have a master plan for my Hexagon quilt, the color scheme is muted ( of course ) using reproduction fabrics I have had in my stash for quite a long time now. I also think it would be nice to add some applique somewhere in the quilt top. Let's wait and see how it goes. Take a look at my progress.

Not surprised the bug is VERY Contagious!
I’ve moved on from the paper templates and am now using Inklingo which I love. Prints on the back of the fabric – ink washes out, and stitch with a running stitch. No stitches showing on the front, no glue – Its great.
Takes less than half the time.
Off to Sydney tomorrow to a class with Kathy Doughty! Yay!!

After being asked the question regarding how I sew around applique circles, I gave this some thought. It happened that I was working on some applique with circles in it and gave the video on my new phone a try. Wow! it worked fabulously. I had so much fun making the video I now have many more planned.

Lately I have been sorting through my pile of quilts and have come across some of my long lost treasures. I thought I would share some of my memories of making these lovely quilts, cushions and table runners with you.

First on the list is the Wreath cushion, made quite some time ago now. I loved making this cushion from start to finish. It was one of those projects where everything seemed to fall into place just the way I had imagined it.
