Another WIP this week. First mentioned on the blog here, nearly 2 years ago.
An homage to my grandmother's one-and-only-quilt-she-made (shown here) that I inherited, re-quilted and absolutely cherish.
Another great scrappy project. All paper pieced and hand stitched. Each hexagon measures 1 inch along each side.
I have 14 more flowers to make, white 'borders' to tie them all together and also some work to do on the edges to straighten them up a little. And that's before I've even begun to think about quilting (which I plan to do by hand).
This is most definitely my slowest stitching project but a great one to pick up when I'm running out the door to Perle 8's and don't want to lug around a sewing machine. Also great for taking on holidays, or even having some piecework to keep in my bag for those moments when the craft 'itch' takes hold and I'm out and about!
Do you have a portable project like this one that you keep on hand? What is your 'go-to' slow crafting project?
