I have been working on hexies for the last month. Piccies later.
I gave up on Perkiomen Daydreams as I wasn't happy with my accuracy on earlier blocks. I have pieced the finished blocks into a cot sized flimsy, as cot sized people are no the quilt police! I will quilt this when I need a baby quilt in a hurry.
I have started another postage stamp quilt, from the 1 1/2" bin. I am not using this size, so I sewed some strip sets together and will sub-cut a few at a time- blocks of colour when I need a quick fix. Teenny bits help me with my accuracy.
I have done a few of these flying geese strips, from 2" scraps in sets 1-8, again, to work on my accuracy. They will probably make a scrappy border for something.
These two charity quilts are pinned and ready for quilting, all orphan blocks. I have several filmsies of the moth blocks in this size, I am practicing with the fancy stitches on my Bernina before I quilt the king size version!
This one is part quilted.
Much more to do to shape the moths.
A charity quilt finish today, about 1m square.
This one was frugal:
- Backing was a new gifted polycotton duvet cover
- Many shirts were harmed in the making of the blocks
- All the thread was gifted polyester from my dressmaker mum's stash
- The stripy border was a charity shop cotton duvet cover
- The white border is recycled cotton sheeting
- The scrappy binding is made from off-cuts from previous quilt backings
