Thanks to everyone who read my blog-hop post and offered suggestions on what to do with my hexagons. I now have a plan! I have basted some more hexagons, using my fat-quarter bundle, and will make them into a cushion front. It will not be a fancy or complicated pattern. I will just let the pretty Bonnie and Camille fabrics speak for themselves.
I started thinking of hexagons as I will need a travel project to take with me when I visit my Canadian in-laws in a few months. My current knitting project is far too bulky.
Then, I remembered the cute ‘English Paper-Piecing Travel Kit’, a free pattern by The Zen of Making, which I had pinned on Pinterest. In fact, I had pinned it three times. I liked the idea that much. It must be time to make it.
The red, spotted fabric is left over from my redwork quilt and the Lecien red-and-white fabric is one I was given by my sewing group a year and a half ago. Instead of including it in the scrappy triangle quilt with all the other fabrics the group gave me, I set it aside. It was one of my favourites and I wanted to save it for something special.
The pattern came together without a hitch. It does require a bit of hand sewing, but then people are unlikely to make an English paper-piecing project if they are not fans of hand sewing.
Haley of The Zen of Making describes herself as a gal in granny glasses. So am I! Disappointingly, none of my granny glasses has diamantés as hers do.
Once again I prove that I could happily sew sewing accessories all day, every day.
