I’ve become a virtual blogging hermit lately. This is partly because I’ve had so little time to sew that I’ve had nothing to blog about and partly because I was starting to get worried about my Mini Quilt Wall Hanging for the Brit Quilt Swap 3 so I decided not to sew anything else until I’d finished it.
I didn’t draw out a coloured pattern for this and the coloured design ended up looking more triangular than I expected so I decided on the hexagon shape and quilting to try to keep more with the circle style which I think my partner likes.
For the back I used this lovely print fabric which I received from Rebecca Lynne at Making Rebecca Lynne and because my partner also seems to like birds I decided to put some on the label for him/her. I’ve covered his/her name with a dandelion leaf to keep her identity secret.
I decided to cross stitch the label. I began with the orange bird and it evolved to be bigger than I’d planned but I don’t suppose that matters because it’ll be against the wall anyway.
