The little wallhanging for the baby is almost all done - just the binding, sleeve and label which I should get done tomorrow. We have our sit and sew day and that is what I will sit and sew on. After that, I will post it's final picture. In the meantime, I have done a little bit on something that has been waiting in the wings - my hexagon flowers. I found this yummy background batik that features very soft green dots and went through my stash to find greens for leaves and vines.
This is the quilt that I am loosely working from. It's the Nancy Page Magic Vine quilt from back in maybe the 1930's. Will do the panels with flowers and leaves and then a blank strip for quilting. At least, that's the idea at the moment. I would like to make this a bed size quilt and a strippie quilt is a good one for that. There is a pattern for this quilt at http://sentimentalstitches.net/free-stuff/block-of-the-month-quilt-designs/nancy-page-club/nancy-page-club-magic-vine-quilt/ along with a lot of other free patterns for old quilts. It's a fun place to visit. The blocks in the above quilt are 6 x 6 - I am making mine 6 x 11 and sewing them together after the leaves and vines have been buttonhole appliqued down. Right now, I am planning to hand applique the hexie flowers. (Click to enlarge)
