This weekend Hanne and I have spendt a lot of time in my sewingroom. While Hanne was playing with her log cabin……
…..I started with one of my UFO’s.
This is going to be a Christmas cushion. I sewed the borders on and quilted it, but then I got distracted from something Hanne brought me.
I had ordered this package with templates and paper pieces, and of course I had to try out some of the blocks. I love Sue Daleys patterns, and with this package I can play a lot with templates and make all kind of hexagons. You can se some of the variations here, here, here and here.
I want to make my quilt in red and white. Hanne had a big laugh when I started to pick out the red fabrics from my boxes, because I had told her I just had a few red fabrics. And this is just some of the fabrics I showed Hanne. I think there is some more ……………LOL But you all know I love red fabrics.
I was not sure which fabrics that was already washed or not, so I gave all of them a turn in the washing machine.
Rusken had to inspect all the fabrics.
And then I was ready to start making some hexagons.
My first two hexagons is finished. It is so fun to make them.
I also finished sewing down the binding on these six placemats.
Saying for today:
