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!!

While sewing the flowers on the border of the Feathered Star Quilt, I thought it would be great to share my method

Here are the steps I used to complete the flower and stitch it in place.

For each flower shape, use freezer paper templates and iron the edges over the freezer paper. You can find more detailed instructions about this in my e-book Applique! Creating and Stitching here

There are two types of flowers in the border, I will start the Tutorials with the Pink and Red Daisy flowers.
