I am the Queen Bee this month for the online quilting bee, ANZAC Bee.
I have received a few blocks in the last couple of days and although I am yet to piece them together, this is the look I'm going for. I think it's going to be a really beautiful quilt!
I'm also working on a good old fashioned 9-patch using fabrics from the American Jane "Breath of Avignon" range. I love these colours with a navy background. This will be a gift for the next baby boy that comes along (there are plenty of babies on the way!).
I have completed 30 hexagon flowers with Judie Rothermel civil war reproduction fabric, ostensibly for the Hexagon Charm Quilt piece-along that I am a member of, but it's not going to be a charm quilt, so now it's just a hexagon project I'm working on. I was going to applique the flowers to a background fabric, with sashing in between each piece of appliqued fabric, but I didn't really enjoy the applique, so I'm thinking I may now need to make an awful lot of hexagons to go in between the flowers.... Not sure yet.
And because I am basically insane, I have started making another set of hexagons out of liberty prints. Don't ask me why, because I don't know myself!
This is a sneak peak of yet another project I have on the go at the moment. The technique is called "pojagi", which is Korean patchwork. It is a double-sided piece of patchwork, with no batting in between, making it an excellent patchwork project for someone living in a warm climate. I first learned of this at The Silly BooDilly's blog. This woman's work is seriously beautiful! Do yourself a favour and check out her blog.
Then I found this lovely blog, which gives EXCELLENT instructions on how to make pojagi patchwork. This blog is written by a Japanese lady in English, which is her second language, but her instructioins are nonetheless really clear. She has used pojagi to make a furoshiki, which is a Japanese wrapping cloth. Her furoshiki is divine.
So, as usual, I have an enormous number of projects on the go, with many more UFOs waiting for some much needed attention piling up in the corner of the dining room! Oh well, I don't fight it anymore. This is how I work. Now I just go with it.
Thanks for dropping by, and if you are reading this now, thanks for reading all the text as well!
