My little mini quilt is finished. Each one of the 61 hand sewn Hexagons are all in a different fabric from my much loved Lecien and Atsuko Matsuyama stash (she says bowing head in slight embarrassment that I actually have that many different fabrics!) As the hexi's are hand sewn it seemed right to hand quilt and I was having embroidery withdrawal symptoms, so I couldn't resist adding the little flowers and french knot details. My only slight disappointment is the wadding I used, it was a piece left over from my brick quilt and slightly to think for a mini quilt......I do not think I am ever 100% satisfied with something I sew, am I alone in that?
Talking of embroidery, I've started a new pattern...I am really loving coral and orange shades at the moment.....
I just had to share some of the pretties that have arrived this week... this gorgeous collection of fabrics is from the Wee Wander collection by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller.... loving that coral orangey leaf print
we also added this pretty lace to our growing collection, the vintage navy has been extremely popular!
and finally Aunt Grace Minatures, we have been waiting for these since the Autumn. I've been holding out starting the QAL in anticipation of these arriving, so I had best get started as I am now 3 weeks behind ( don't panic...don't panic!!!)
I hope that you have a lovely crafty weekend and thank you as always for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment, I do so enjoy reading them.
