Have you seen Vingette magazine?
It's an Austrailian magazine and has been hard to find here in the good ole USA...
but as luck would have it...I found mine
In issue #2 there is a hexagon quilt that Kassidy and I both fell in love with...
(we both have an ongoing hexi crush:)
We decided that we would make
the quilt together.
Some of the fabric that was used in
the original quilt is
Sweet Broderie by Rosalie Quinland.
We both love this line and so we
decided to use
it for our quilt too.
The quilt also has embroidered flowers on
some of the hexagons...fun!
We will be using Cosmo embroidery floss...yummy!
Don't you just love the planning part of making a quilt?...I do:)
We need to make 980 hexies that we will stitch together to make 140 flowers.
We will also embroider on 59 hexagons.
You know I can't make a quilt
so we added my
Sew Cherry red gingham
along with a few others into the mix!
Along with several polka dots...
And a few more pieces of Sew Cherry and a couple of sweet strawberry prints for
Cutting out the hexies was quick and fun.
We die cut them using the same method that I showed you long ago in my tutorial...
We will paper piece the hexies just like this...
And stitch the flowers together just like this.
We have them all cut now and ready to go.
Kassidy thought the pile of fabric scraps that were leftover looked like confetti and were
"too cute to throw away"...
So she stuffed them all in a jar!
I have no idea what she'll do with them...
I'm sure she'll think of something:)
