I love Hexagons, and when I saw this Stitch-Along on Instagram, I fell in love. The freshness and style of this quilt had me excited and I wanted to start straight away. I was a little late jumping on board with it, but better late than never. I just wanted to make the scrappy hexagons with all my leftover scrappy bits of fabric. I planned keeping it bright and fresh, so out came my scraps!
Pinks were the most dominant color and then greens, purples (which I usually don't use much of), blues and oranges. Cover, cover, cover those 1in hexagons. All 322 of them. I use old cards from christmas and cut my own shapes out with a hexagon cutter.
I then glue baste them and stitch together with flat back stitching. I had found this tutorial on YouTube and loved the fact that I didn't have to hold the two hexagons really tight with my thumb and finger (giving me an ache in my thumb which was like a bad cramp). I'm about half way with my hexagon flowers and have picked out my background fabric to make the quilt.
Be Sure to look on Instagram if your on that media and check out the Kingfisher Stitch-along. There are some beautiful quilts that others are making. And have a look at Anorina's finished quilt HERE, its gorgeous and fresh.
Its super sunny outside today, perfect for a cuppa and some sewing. I'm going to go and enjoy it for a little bit.
Have a wonderful day. I'll be back with a recipe next time for some protein balls.
