I took my heirloom quilt and plenty more hexagons back to Somerset for Christmas so that I could spend some quality time stitching. My sister was the last one to design a section, so this time it was my Mum’s turn. Her heirloom quilt, which inspired mine, has lots of hexagon flowers in it, so I love that her panel for my quilt is based on this pattern. She picked out some great fabrics, including Happy Drawing by Ed Emberley (which I got from my latest splurge at the Eternal Maker!), some limited edition V&A fabric, some leftover lovelies from my niece’s quilt and one of my favourite fabrics ever – a scandinavian inspired beauty with a girl on horseback.
I’m stitching this quilt completely by hand, so check back for updates and to watch it grow! If you want to take a peek at how big it currently is, hop over to my About page for a photo.
