Last night I got a silly idea, yeah I know it's not unusual but this time I actually acted upon it. You see I was flicking through some very old quilting magazines. DH was on duty and TV was boring so I flicked through quite a pile. One quilt pattern in various styles kept popping up and each time I liked it more, so out came the paper, pencil, ruler and compass. Yep, that was the key word - compass. How else was I going to draw up all those hexagons that a Grandmothers Garden needs?
I drew up a couple of pages of hexi's then realised "photocopier", duh! Anyway, I cut quite a few out last night before bed.
This morning I was skimming through new posts and started reading Sherri's, at aquiltinglife.blogspot.com . She has got one of those new Accuquilt Go! Cutters, wow, that would save a whole lot of time - not to mention stiff fingers! Anyway, Sherri is having a give away so why not pop over and have a look at this great piece of modern technology that Sherri has.
As for my hexi quilt - well it's going to be a hand stitch job and probably a long term one too so watch this space (for a long long time)
A Very Vintage Christmas Sew Along!
