About seven years ago I joined the Fat Quarter Bargains Club at a local quilt shop called Sew Sisters. Each month 10 fat quarters were mailed to me. It was a great deal but after awhile I had a LOT of fat quarters....LOL I had to quit while I still had room for them all. I have no idea why I joined as I never intended to make a full size quilt. Fabric junkie I guess and it was such an easy way to shop for small amounts of fabric for dolls and crazy quilting.
There were a few sets that I wasn't really in love with though. There was one batch that I decided to use to make hexies. For what I don't know. No real plan. Just to use up the fabric I guess.
Then recently I was looking for something to get me started back into hand sewing again. I found the hexies and I put them together and made a table runner. I've never made anything like this before so it was a learning experience.
I'm not a quilter so I struggled with what to put where. I only had a limited number of hexies and options for pattern and colour. I even asked
the husband what he thought. Then along came my son who also offered his
opinion. In the end this was the result...all hand sewn. I think I like how it turned out. I'm getting used to it. Blue is not a colour I choose to use very often. The dark blue and the pale green don't really work that well together but hey I used up the fabric and made something. Best of all I'm sewing again.
Sue Beevers for Northcott Fabrics. You'll see on her website that not all of the collection is still available. I much prefer the Autumn Warmth version but then greens, rusts and browns are my favourites.
I'm adding this post to the WIP Wednesday Link-Up at the Needle and Thread Network as I haven't done that in a while. I hope you pop over and visit.
