just keep sewing.......

Ok - one 'flower' with another twenty five unit added:
Now I have four units added to the flower, I am starting to get a nice jumble of colours:
I'm going to have to speed up my sewing - especially so for the cream connecting strips.
I still have no idea what it's going to turn into yet!

Hexagon ideas....

I'm really enjoying sewing these hexagons - and that's something I NEVER thought I would say!
I've made some ivory hexagons to break up the design. I've sewn the coloured hexagons into blocks of twenty five and the ivory ones in strips of five. I'm playing around with the design by pinning them onto a design wall.
 I'll keep on sewing and see what happens.....

BQL 2011 Challenge March /April

It started with a bit of quilting using a variegated thread on a gorgeous piece of batik fabric....Then went on to sewing an eye and adding a few sequins.....
Then a tail was added....Until finally I had a fish:

A slight deviation

Ok - so I know it's more hexies, but now I have a plan.....

and I'm going to need to sew lots of hexagons.

These are just a start:
I think this might be a fairly long term project. In the meanwhile I need to do some designing in EQ7 and sew some creamy white hexagons to add to the mix. Watch this space....
Oh and if you have any idea where I can get some Liberty fabric scraps I would love to hear from you.
