2 down, 23 to go

Oh boy. I thought making the hexagons would take time. How about taking out all those papers, pressing them and appliqueing them. I’ve done 2 and can see this could take a couple of days when you factor in all of the little distractions I have here.

Another Hex Appliqued

At least clearing out my craft room this morning gave me a serious case of hayfever so I’m leaving it alone today and walking between the iron and the machine! The first hexagon I appliqued above (before I took it to the machine) I used an iron on fusible webbing which goes against the pattern but I thought would be a better way

But I actually prefer the softer, puffier (it’s a word!) look of the second one I did just here. I followed the pattern and pinned it down but am using blanket stitch on my machine rather than hand stitching which the pattern calls for. If you haven’t done blanket stitch yet, check out your machine stitches. It looks like a comb and is a really handy little stitch that I use a lot! Ok, well I’ll just keep going………….23 to go.
p.s the pattern is from this lovely book by Rosalie Quinlan and is featured on the cover!


  1. Corrie, you are a machine! How you manage to plough through all this whilst having 4 littlies under your wing amazes me. Is Retrodaddy in charge of them?! And you know I adore the blue. *Sigh*. J x

  2. I loved those quilted blankets when I was a child
