For the trip away a little sewing project was needed, so up until two hours before the flight I was madly cutting out little squares, in preparation for hand pieced hexagons, using english paper piecing. If you are interested in the process, check out Kristy at HandmadeRetro for a very fast learning curve.
For the trip I cut out 5 inch squares of green and cream fabric, and used a charm pack of something with butterflies. It’s not my usual taste, but it might be a nice wall quilt for the baby. Or by the time it’s finished someone else’s baby. Or even a granddaughter. We’re keeping hand piecing expectations very low over here.
The real problem, is I have come to a COMPLETE standstill over design! Here are a few of the contenders.
Any ideas? I’m gravitating towards the last design with a darkish grey/blue to fill, although a large scale print could create balance between the simple blocks and the busy bright blocks. Sorry. Hexies.
