I used Lynne's wonderful pattern Hexagon Park and used the great fabric Just Wing It, which I won a layer cake of from the talented Maureen. Thanks to these amazing ladies! Also huge thanks to Laura for suggesting I put the two together, you have such great taste (and have become one of my idols)! I'm pleased with how it turned out. For a special baby girl my 'Wing It to Hexagon Park' quilt:
I did big loopy quilting, which reminded me I must do fmq practice!! It's not too bad though and I'm glad I did it large because it's kept the quilt nice and soft. I just hope she loves it.
In other news it's been an amazing fabric week! Thank you so much to everyone that joined in and supported the Stale Stash Swap, I got some awesomeness as a result and hope you did too!
First up from the lovely Kerry at PennyDog these delights, the one on the right is her own fabulous design!
She also very kindly sent these cute charms and brilliant buttons (that I had to wrangle away from my daughter!!)
I got these lovely prints from the fabulous Jess at The Elven Garden. I've been a bad blogger recently but I just went over there and she's working on some gorgeous projects, she has such a great eye for creating fabric combinations! I will be using the Habitat (on the right) in my Rose Star quilt
Then some scrummy DS from my wonderful friend Susan at Patchwork n Play
If you haven't seen it already you have to check out her AMAZING farmer's wive quilt, Sunnybrook Farm, which incorporates these yummy fabrics and more! It's spectacular!
I also got half a yard of this Spirographix from the talented and hilarious Danny at Mommy For Reals
I'm honestly in love with it!! The colours are so gorgeous, more so in real life. Now just thinking how to put this to good use :)
Finally I had a conundrum recently when I found out I was the very lucky winner of a fat quarter bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop, thanks to their great St. Patrick's Day giveaway on the Jolly Jabber as part of the Quilting Gallery's blog hop. Why the conundrum? Because I had to chose my prize!! I know, I know, what a tough job!! It was really hard though, they have so much choice and so many great lines. I was thinking with my head though. I have so many projects on my To Sew List and a stash of fabric to make them with. I like buying fabric for a project or knowing what I'm doing with fabric as soon as I've bought it!! So aside from this stash of fabric I have accumulated that is already assigned to quilts I'm going to make, I don't have much else. Really I didn't need another set of prints, although there's so many scrummy ones, so I was sensible (??) and got this:
An utterly delicious FQ bundle of Pure Organic Kona Cotton Solids. It so gorgeous!! Thank you so much to the Fat Quarter shop team for the great giveaway and the amazing customer service as always :)
Out of general nosiness what bundle would you have picked??
