In the New Year I promised to set some goals. In previous years I have used words and sayings to help keep me on track but failed miserably. Like most Resolutions. This year I just plan to be more determined.
Last years blogging efforts were really dire so hopefully there is still someone out there interested and not given up on me.
A few months ago at my Wednesday Sewing Group I rescued a small pack of roughly cut hexagons from a bin liner full of scraps and challenged myself to do something with them. Not my usual colours but they looked so inviting.
They were trimmed to size and I just so happened to have a pack of 7/8" paper pieces from Lina Patchwork.
I played around with quite a few settings and came up with this.
Once all the hexagons were stitched it was time to audition background fabrics and it seemed right to only use what I could find in the stash.
I eventually settled on the dark blue as it made all the colours appear brighter.
Also in my stash was a bundle of Worn and Washed plaids and it fitted in with the recycling ethos that this top was becoming. Strips were added around the borders and it is now a nice size for a small person to snuggle under.
Now all I need to do is quilt as desired.
Happy new year if you have got this far. It would be lovely to hear from you.
