I’ve been really lucky to attend both the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show as well as the Spring Country Living Fair in the last week. There was so much lovely inspiration and a fair few fabric purchases too. Lately I’ve been spending my precious free time making hexagons the EPP way. I just love the whole process, from making paper templates, to choosing fabrics and basting my hexagons. Somehow I’ve ended up with 4 patchwork projects on the go, all in various stages of completion.
My current favourite is my doll size version of a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt. A while ago I found a wooden doll bed in a charity shop and I’ve been busy making quilts and blankets for Little Sis (and the toddler) to play with. Grandmother’s Flower Garden is a really pretty pattern and it came together really easily, until I ran out of the green I was using. Silly me had only bought a fat quarter from a fabric shop miles away.
So now I’m in a dilemma and hoping someone can help. How do I finish it off?
I want it to be rectangular in size with a bound edge but do I fill in the gaps with hexagons in a different shade of green? Or go for a different colour? Any advice happily received
