While Mum isn't quite as crazy about quilting and patchwork as myself and Aunty Dor, she does love to get into a bit of English Paper Piecing.
She's been working on this purple number for a while now, adding to her fabric stash as she goes. She's built up quite a stash now, mostly purple obviously, with a few other bits thrown in. This piece has had a new breath of life since we went to the Kaffe Fassett lecture. It already had a couple of Kaffe fabrics in it but we've subsequently added a couple more to the stash.
Here is her little helper pointing out a few of his faves. (the first one is a Kaffe, the boy has good taste what can I say!)
And some shoes even got a look in - Mum's pseudonym is Imelda!
It is gorgeous! I love purple and hexies, so it is a great combo!
I just started paper piecing, already addicted I think......
Certainly looking lovely. Well done my dear sister.
It is gorgeous......I have started and becoming addicted as well. I am still trying to work out which way to do things. The purple is just beautiful.
Well done, runs in the family the craft thing!!!
As you know I am a lover of the hexagon, and thanks for dropping by my blog. Come visit anytime. cheers happy friday
Thanks for your lovely comments everyone, Mum was very chuffed.
I was thinking of starting a group hexagon blog where everyone can post pictures of their hexagon projects - anyone interested?
