I think it is finally time for me to have a go at these hexigons. A nice little bit of handpiecing for me to take to sewing groups and while I am travelling. I have fussy cut some of the fabrics and love the look it gives.
Just one question for all those hexi makers out there. Do you sew baste or glue the fabric to the paper hexigons?
Vintage Sewing Projects with The Crafty Squirrel
Mar 17, 2014-5:09pm
I have been having a great time helping Morgan (The Crafty Squirrel) create some fabulous projects using her collection of vintage sheets. Morgan has been collection Vintage sheets for years and thats why she has such a fabulous collection to work with.
The first two project were of course quilts! Vintage Chevron Quilt Kit. The finished quilt will measure approx. 60” x 72” (152cms x 183cms) This kits includes all the fabric, already pre-cut for to get sewing straight away including binding and the pattern.
Vintage Circles and Squares Quilt Kit. The finished quilt will measure approx.: 152cms x 178cms (60" x 70"). All the fabric is precut in this quilt too. The circles already have fusible webbing attached to the back of the circles so you can start straight away.
The circles in this quilt have been stiched down using the raw edge applique method. I then did some hand quilting in maching colours using perle 8 cotton.
We also came up with a cushion project using pre-cut squares of vintage sheet fabrics.
This kits includes all the fabric, including the backing, a piece of cotton batting for quilting and 3 vintage buttons.
Robyn Muller: Brilliant stuff! And really good for people who have trouble cutting the fabric for whatever reason. They can have a lovely decorator piece with the most frustrating (in my opinion) part of the job already done. :)

Helen F: Emma would you believe I still have "TWO" sets of those sheets from sheriden in the yellow/orange designs. I bought them for my "glory box" back in 1972!!!!

Just before Christmas I started making a quilt out of the brighter colours from Terra Australis. I wanted to design a new quilting using the flying geese block.
I love triangles at the moment!
I had fun putting the colours together on this quilt.
After I finished the blocks I decided that the quilt needed a border of more triangles!!
I quilted this quilt quite simply, just stitching with my walking foot in the ditch. I also pieced the back using strips of 4 different kangaroo print colours.
This quilt is now availble as a pattern from my online store.
I think this quilt would also look great in scraps and would be a great stash buster!!

A few months ago I was asked to create a project using the beautiful range of Liberty Fabrics. I chose to create a pair of cushions using raw edge applique and circles.
The first cushion is up on the Liberty Craft Blog today, and the 2nd cushion tutorial will be posted later in the week.
I hope you enjoy making these cushions as much as I enjoyed desgining them!

Economy Block Along Quilt

I have finished my economyblockalaong quilt! Just in time as I have to give it away on Sunday.
I choose a colour palette to match my Brother and Sister in Law's loungeroom. They have a light neutral sofa and a gorgeous black and white rug. I hope they will like it as much as I do.
