More Patchwork

Sorry to have been quiet for a while, I could make umteen excuses for not blogging, but sadly none are interesting enough to write about.

Anyway, I have been doing some plain and simple patchwork, working mainly with Kaffe Fassett fabric, which I love working with, albeit the patterns are a little gaudy for my taste, but I’m needing a change.

The blocks have all been made but not put together yet, here’s a photo of them spread out on the floor – just put your sunglasses on before viewing!

Yes, I did say it was gaudy, but I’ll press on.

It’s not only Joan making hexagons, I have done a little project as well, just not on the scale of Joan’s.  Mine is the centre of a small cushion, but I like the effect.  Hexagons are a great way of using up little pieces of scrap fabric and when put together it is amazing how all sorts of patterns go well together, anyway here is a photo of my finished cushion.

I hope you can see all the hand stitching on the background, quite subtle I know.

I now have to concentrate on a quilt for the local Uttoxeter Quilt Show, held at the Uttoxeter Race Course in April.  I will let you have dates later.  I have stalled with this quilt for now, as I can’t think the best way to proceed, but I’m hoping my design brain will get into gear sooner rather than later.  I’ll keep you posted.

That’s all for now,

Marg
