Over the past year Ma and I have become quilters. And, as with all new skills, as you progress you learn new things.
What I’ve learned is that if I’m at my sewing machine I want to be making clothes. Not quilts. However, I’ve also learned that I love hand sewing quilts. Phew. Quilts are too lovely to abandon completely.
So, much as I’d like to crack on with another North Country quilt, I have another project that’s been waiting for my attention:
Aren’t they just adorable?
Nearly a thousand beautiful little hexies waiting to be sewn.
I have to add at this point that I didn’t cut these out. Ma did. Isn’t she amazing? Thanks Ma!
I made a start last night.
This is definitely a slow project. Perfect for evenings curled up by the fire with The Husband and a movie.
But I know I’m going to enjoy every single stitch.
The Husband was most cross that I was starting another quilt.
Until I put his mind at rest that this one is destined to be a sofa quilt.
The Wedding Quilt is staying firmly on our bed.
He’s happy now!
