However, I couldn’t say no to this one! It was a themed mini quilt swap where you were to use mostly Alison Glass fabric. Of course I couldn’t say no, I have a lot of her fabric on hand. Easy Peasy.
The mini itself was mostly hand sewn using custom hexagon pieces I designed. There are several sizes and even though this layout wasn’t my original plan, it still came out really neat. I used fabric from numerous Alison Glass lines along with black chambray for the binding and backing (don’t worry, I’m almost out of that stuff, so you wont see it AS much soon). I also tried out some hand quilting details around the hexagon edges. It’s not perfect, but I am getting more comfortable with the process.
I also stitched up a little fabric hexagon bowl. It’s my new favorite thing to make and I plan on adding it to every swap I do from now on. Fabric bowls are useful! Where else will you put your spare change? or bobbins? or rings? or anything else tiny you like to move around? I wish I had taken a better photo of it though!! I guess I’ll just have to wait to share a photo of the next bowl, for the next swap, which is due this week…
Oh and I’ll share the package I received later this week!Pin It
