After everyone’s wonderful suggestions about what I could do for a week without blogland or a sewing machine I found this pattern on shapes that tesselate and I made a start on my first ever EPP… I could imagine a whole quilt like this but, although, I love the pattern and fabrics I think this is destined only to be a cushion – and even that may take some time! Now I’m even more in awe of the patience of all you hexie addicts!
I do have some pictures of a little finish before I left though, which is now somewhere between here and the USA. This was my addition to Elizabeth’s quilt top in the ‘Free Two Bee’ bee.
These ‘Free Two Bee’ tops get more amazing with every round and I always feel really nervous about ruining them. This is what Elizabeth’s looks like now.
In the process I made some flower stems I really didn’t like (although the colour is very off here making it look even worse!) so I made them into a block, which I’m thinking of turning into something for Le Challenge with Lucy and Nat…Would you call this geometric?
