The lovely Aneela over at Comfortstitching has started a Half Hexagon quilt along and I've decided to join in the fun. The idea is to make a hexagon quilt that is sewed on the sewing machine, rather than English paper pieced, thereby being a lot quicker to put together! It has taken me a while to decide on which fabrics I will use for this quilt. I have finally decided on a 2 colour quilt....raspberry and aqua.
Aren't these colours delicious? I know the blue and white jug did not need to be in the photo, but he decided to sneak in and I didn't have the heart to tell him to go stand somewhere else!
So I have chosen the colour of the quilt, cut some of the fabric into 2 1/2 inch strips, now I'm off to make the half hexagon template and cut them all out. Hopefully I will have something to show you in a few days or so...at least some half hexagons on my design wall!!
I will leave you with a pic of my favourite tree in our garden...our humble lemon tree. I love our little lemon tree, its glossy green leaves, white flowers and bright yellow fruit brings joy to my heart. Sometimes the simple things are the best.
Have a lovely weekend xo
