Love Patchwork & Quilting - Sharing your passion for fabric! this project is in Issue 20, (one of my favorite magazines). It is from the U.K. but you can find it at Barnes & Noble Stores near you or a Books a Million. Book stores with magazines are my favorite place to hang out in a city. Which is one of the few things I miss living out here in the boon docks.
I started to work on my shrink it project last night and testing different size hexagons, I think I am happy with 1 1/2"! I have cut several sizes of strips and will get back to you on what works! For now this is what I have.
I am in a Halloween Mini Quilt Swap on Instagram and I think my partner will really love this pincushion once I figure it out! The fabric above is Cotton + Steel! I think it might be to little for a lot of quilting like in the pillows but I am going to sew it directly to my batting!
I learned something! Do not spray adhesive glue on your hand while holding a 1 1/2" hexagon, it does not wash off. I washed my hands 5 times and was still sticky.
Use hand sanitizer to remove the glue!
If you live anywhere near Sturges, South Dakota watch out for all the motorcycles on the roads! Biggest bike rally ever is going on this week over a million bikers are suppose to attend. Glad I am home!
My husband (in the leather vest) and his best friend at Mount Rushmore! Since his surgery last December we decided we would get out more to visit with family and friends. Enjoying the life God has given us. We have really gone a lot of places this Summer and surprisingly haven't gone broke. Traveling on a budget can be done with some planning ahead.
Please take time to smell the roses with your loved ones!
