Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a super day. It’s been sunny in my little world today. I just wish the sun would bring some warmth with it.
I’m sorry I missed you yesterday. I was at my Quilts for Comfort volunteer afternoon. By the time I got home I had no more energy. My brain was too tired to post. However, today I have a little bit of progress to show you. I spent quite a lot of time adding some raw edge machine appliqué to last weeks new design. I stitched a few circles on …..
And a few hearts …..
And then I joined the three sections of this quilt together and this is what it looks like now.
I’m might add one more bit of appliqué in the bottom corner. I just don’t want to spoil it by adding too much. You know I quite often say that less is more. This is another quilt that was requested which I feel needs to be a quick make which will cheer someone up. So, I kept the design simple and added some machine appliqué to soften the straight lines. I’m not quite sure when but I will be longarm quilting this quilt top sometime soon.
My other little bit of progress is really only prep work, so not something very exciting but it needs doing if I want to make serious progress on my little hexagon project. I cut hundreds of fabric hexagons …..
I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. When you find a technique that you enjoy, even the prep work is fun. I’ve found a great method of cutting my fabric hexagons. And I stick to that method. I feel the repetition is soothing. I keep al my fabric shapes in a box that contain dividers which helps everything from getting all jumbled up.
So, it was back to normal today. Whatever normal is. My Sarah headed off to Manchester to attend a music gig this evening. So, Maisie and I have the house to ourselves this evening. It’ll be feet up with some hand stitching for me and a lot of snoring for Maisie. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching.
