More Patchwork

This is daughters next patchwork project, she has already started the stitching of the hexagons, all by hand. This will be made into a cushion cover for grandsons bedroom. I love the colours they are very masculine. He's a lucky boy.
 I have not had much time for my own work at the moment,but lots of ideas in the notebook. Stewarding the Traditions at  Lydiard exhibition yesterday, gave me the opportunity to think about my work. That was in-between all the visitors to the exhibition.It was really lovely to meet everyone and get some ideas together about m work..

This is going to be beautiful Maggie. I agree about the colours just right for a boy.
Well done Sam

The blues and browns remind me of some of the quilts in Susan Briscoe's book "Japanese Quilt Blocks". I nearly made one for my little grandson but in the end I just made a traditional quilt using up lots of lovely Kaffe Fassett blues from my Cotton Patch pieces - can't remember what they call them - about 9" by 11". The effect of the hexagons floating on the background is most effective. Maybe see you and your daughter in Missenden on the 9th June - it's 11-4 though I may have said 10-4!
