I know, original title. As soon as I saw Ms McPorkchops I knew I had to make these, and I did, in January this year, just posting now. Love the unironed picture!! Super duper cute. Linen fronts and something from the stash on the backs, can't remember what it is, no selvedge info, but it's ridiculously soft and vintagey. Link to pattern.
*cough* quite a while ago…I just haven't had the time to photograph them. So yesterday afternoon I had some time, was running out to the washing line to hang them from it and photograph and then it started pissing with rain. Yep, pissing. Determined, I used the outdoor table instead. This was such a fun swap, thanks Sooz for organising it, totally loved all I received.
Sooz has generously organised another swap, the "put to good use" swap. It's a bloody ripper and I wish I could play this time, but I'm going to have to sit this one out. You have until the 30th May to sign-up, so get on over and play.
Kristen Doran – I love Kristen's work.
Sooz – LOVE this Sooz.
Clementine's Shoes – such a clever idea Di! And a gorgeous potholder.
Really Turning Japanese – So pretty Ellen
Bespoke Uprising – LOVE that farmhouse Roisin!
Well, almost. It just needs a label on the back. I think I enjoyed piecing all the hexagons together more than actually finishing this.
The deets, hand pieced hexagons, these are tiny. Overall finished hexagon flowers are about 2.5 inches across. They're machine top sewn onto a linen back and I then machine sewed 2 different hexagon sizes around the hex ring. The back is one piece. Machine sewn binding on the top and hand sewn down on the back. Done. 🙂 Overall dimensions about 12 x 12 inches. Hoping my swap recipient can "embrace the wonk", a term Sooz recently introduced me too, enjoy it's colourful charm and overlook some of the fine detail.
Doll quilt swap blog and flickr group, there are also notes about the fabrics used on this picture at my flickr.
