This is my ultimate work in progress – a hand stitched hexagonal patchwork quilt which will one day be large enough to cover a double bed. I am using all my favourite fabrics and am always on the look out for new ones to add. So my first panel is completed and my sister has designed the second, which is so very nearly finished. I’ve been so busy lately, sewing 150 metres of bunting to decorate Palmerston Road for the jubilee and working on a super secret project, that I haven’t had the time to finish this panel but as so many lovely people have asked me about my progress I wanted to give you an update. I will be wanting your opinion soon on my next panel so stay tuned with your thoughts at the ready!
Ruddy Hell Mate! That’s a mission and a half!
It is indeed! I’m trying to keep the momentum going…
Hooray! I can’t wait to keep up with the progress on this 🙂
Thank you sweetpea!
Oh I remember seeing the panel your sister put together – it’s looking fab. How do you sew it all – by hand?! I’m aiming to learn to quilt; I need to get on with that.
Thank you Char, yes its all hand stitched! I’m doing some quilting tutorials on my blog soon so keep an eye out!
You’re doing it by hand?! I am well impressed!! It’s looking beautiful already. Looking forward to seeing more!
Yes its all hand stitched. Thank you!
I feel honoured to have seen the super secret project. Can’t wait to see pictures of it in action!!! x
I cannot wait either. I don’t think it will be long now!
