Inspired by some beautiful florals from Spotlight, Miss O (14) has decided she would like to make her first quilt. We have had a wonderful time browsing Pinterest for design inspiration and hunting through my stash, which I have gradually accumulated over the last six years since I began quilting, reacquainting myself with many favourite fabrics. Miss O knows how I treasure my fabrics so she had to be encouraged to use anything at all which she liked, for I love even more to see these fabrics being thoughtfully used.
As Miss O carefully selected, washed and ironed this beautiful medley of fabrics, I could see how wonderful they would look as a hand pieced hexagon project. Instead of the 1" hexies from which I am making my Fresh Fields EPP quilt (English Paper Piecing), these larger prints are better suited to 1 1/2" hexies. I will share more details of each project as they grow.
