Slicing and Dicing

I love cutting up fabric and like everyone else starting something new is great (doesn't matter how many other things are on the boil).  I've had the Hexagon Quilt pattern for quite a while and a few weeks ago thought it would look great made in pink/red/white.  While I was on holidays recently most of the fabrics I bought were to add to my stash for this quilt.  The pieces are all cut and ready to sew together.


I want to make the quilt for the qs bed in the guest bedroom so it needs to be larger than the pattern.  Think I'll keep making strips till I've used up the already cut pieces and then decide if it's big enough - can always add a border or two.



Sunday again - time is flying these days.  The day for a new Sylvia's Bridal Sampler block to be chosen.  Very chilly winter weekend (well, chilly for us), so a good opportunity for some sewing, cutting out (softie swap and a filly Giddy Up).

Anyone else making Butterfly Garden?  Have a look at May Britt and Hanne's blogs.

What a lovely quilt. I have been contemplating trying the half hex method. Have you pinned it up on a sheet to see what it looks like?
