Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a fabulous day. It’s been a very productive day in my little world. I spent the bulk of my day in my sewing room longarm quilting. The quilts I worked on were both pieced by Claudia. Can you tell that Claudia loves hexagons?
Although both these quilts are both hexagons they couldn’t be more different. The first one, for which Claudia chose a quilting design called Buzz by Hermione Agee of Lorien Quilting, has a medium loft poly wadding and although it’s not super puffy there’s still a good bit of texture.
This second hexie quilt, for which Claudia chose an elephant panto, has a very puffy and much stiffer wadding. This second quilt was a bit more challenging for my system to quilt but it has a marshmallow-like texture that Claudia was hoping for. I love it when a plan comes together.
After working on a couple of hexie quilts today I really feel like working on hexies myself. I have a hexie project on the go but I have so many others that are more urgent. So I’ll have to summon all my willpower and work on something else. I love a bit of EPP; all shapes. I’m going to concentrate on a bit of hand quilting over the next couple of evenings. I have some Quilt as You Go Dresden Plate samples to hand quilt for next week. I must admit that I enjoy hand quilting just as much as EPP. I guess that might be because they’re both done by hand.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be marking some Dresden blocks in readiness for hand quilting. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you really enjoy doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
