My hipBees quilt top
I was going to keep the blog reveal of this quilt top until after I had taken it to show the other hipBees at FQR, but I'm too excited by its yumminess not to show you now.
The gorgeous blocks sent by those busy worker bees were skinny sashed in a red Mama Said Sew print, bordered with more Kona snow with little insets of the fabrics used in the blocks. I have tried to keep the sashing and bordering small in the hope that this quilt might make it on to a wall, rather than becoming a lap quilt, but I'm not sure that it might not still be too big for the space I have in mind. We'll see when I get it finished and can borrow an extra pair of arms to help me hold it up to see.
I love the crispness of the limited red and cream colourways and now I'm feeling impatient to make up a backing from the siggy blocks and get it finished. Will probably have to wait a bit though as I have some projects to finish for others first, but I love how this has come together!
Thanks again Ladies!
PS Before I go, I promised that I would tell you when Judith's Made to Measure Sewing Machine Cover pattern became available on her etsy shop. It is the pattern I used to make my pretty Ruby cover and it worked a treat.
So why not hop on over there and nab yourself a copy so you can dress your machine in style!
