I have always had a fondness for hexagons and in fact my first patchwork lesson that I was given was how to make a pincushion using hexagons. I attempted a simple grandmother's garden quilt too. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that you can buy pre cut paper backing. I bought mine from here. These are great because (1) you are guaranteed accuracy and (2) you don't need to cut out loads and loads of paper templates! :)
I was a bit at a loose end, after we bought bits and pieces for son#1's upcoming birthday on Sunday. So I started basting fabric onto the paper templates.
I also took out my cathedral windows quilt, okay okay it's only a couple of rows but I had custom orders etc so now that I have a bit of down time I have resurrected it. Looking forward to getting on with preparing more blocks. I have also seen some cathedral windows where the backing fabric is coloured as opposed to white. Stunning!
Don't forget my little giveaway, ends this Sunday!
