Anyway today we're talking patchwork. Lovely, lovely, floral, homely, patchwork.
It was while I was searching through my fabrics that I came across this piece of hand stitched patchwork I started yeeeeears ago. As you can see it's very unfinished.
It's made up of lots of little hexagons, stitched together.
It's made from the left over pieces of Brambley Hedge fabric I used, to make a quilt for the little spare bed at my mums house. That quilt was made on the sewing machine and was constructed of squares. It didn't leave a lot of fabric though, and one of the reasons this one is unfinished is because I was unable to find new fabrics that looked right. I even had to resort to embroidering the little centre hexagons myself as I couldn't find any fabric with small enough motifs.
Now its had a nice airing and few photographs taken of it, I can pack it back away in its box for another few years!
This is the picture from the computer of what the new quilt should look like. If I ever get it started. Other projects keep getting in the way!
The pictures not great, but I had to photograph the A4 piece of paper with the print out on it. It looks quite good, if only it was this easy to make the quilt!
