I went shopping last week and found this beautiful white fabric for my grandmother’s garden hexagon quilt. I loved it but now I am noticing that if I want to use it I will have to be careful with the placement because of the design direction :(. Do I use it or choose a white with no direction.
I did a lot of hexagons yesterday; these white and then I started my hexagon swap hexies of 30s.
I went shopping on Friday and bought some sewing essentials!
I fell in love with the white and bought 2 yards of it (backing size). One-sided fusible interfacing to see if it is a good weight for glue applique. That dark blue was a the rest of the bolt that I saw when I was waiting for my friend. It is dangerous when you wait for a friend in a fabric store ;). Anyhow, I had some of this blue in my stash but had run out so…what’s a girl with a stash to do? Snapped it up. I bought some guiterman thread to try out for my hexagon flowers. I am curious . Oh, and that is a pattern for a top that I would like to make. Fun shopping day with my friend Jen!
