The first packet for this quilt, Tante Rosa (Aunt Pink/Rosie), arrived from Lappemakeriet in January 2009, and now it is done, quilting, binding and all :-)
It is 94 hexagon flowers, the sides of the hexagon measuring 1,25".
I will not dive into the math of how many hexagons and half hexagons has gone into this quilt, as quilter's math is not my force :-))
I have pieced this quilt by hand, without paper pieces as in English paper piecing.
I have used more than 200 yards of thread just hand piecing the hexagons.
I have enjoyed the journey every stitch of the way, and I am quite proud about this being my first big hand pieced quilt :-)
Merete has done the lovely quilting.
I changed the backing sent with the quilt for this bolder colour variation, just for fun. It adds an extra touch to this soft coloured quilt.
The furball is having a full day's work paw approving all the quilts these days :-)
Fear not - I still have some BOMs with kits to work on…….. :-)
3 of these 4 are from Lappemakeriet.
Svennebrev. Åttebladrose and Elsker, elsker ikke.
Have I mentioned I absolutely LOVE Lappemakeriet's kits ?
The fabrics and colours are great, and there are always plenty of fabrics in the kits.
Another factor I appreciate very very much is that they always send out their kits on schedule!
You are great !
