As I swelter in the hot days of an Australian Summer, my ever-continuous need to keep my hands (and head) busy with a sewing project hasn’t let up!
With no ‘official’ quilt on the go at the moment, my interest was taken by a quilt that caught my eye in the latest issue of a quilting magazine I’m subscribed to. Designed and made by Jen Carlton Bailly, you can read her own blog post about this quilt here!
So with a wicked bout of the summer flu, struggling courageously through 35-40C heat and calming an obsessive need to watch all five seasons of The Big Bang Theory back-to-back, I plunged into cutting out 120 concave and convex pieces of fabrics….
To add to this, I’ve been feverishly creating hexies out of the fabric scraps to feature on the back of the finished quilt….ahhh heaven!!
And thus my creative journey for 2013 has begun!
Only slightly excited!!
Happy Sewing! xx
