Once again linking with Kate for Scrap Happy Day.
I think I have finally made my scrap happy hexie quilt long enough and wide enough to start thinking about borders.
King size bed, I had to close the curtains for the picture as the sun was shining onto it. Long enough?
I reckon so. My plan is to make a border of blue hexies to go right round it. I had to buy some fabric for this.
The lighter blue is a scrap as you can see, although there is a lot of it. The darker blue and yellow/ blue I bought. I have no idea how much I will need, so I bought them locally in Scarborough from rolls with a lot of fabric on them in case I need more. I really like the yellow/blue one, hope I have some left over…
The border will mostly be the darker blue with random highlights of the other two to give it a lift. The plan then is to back it onto a sheet. Winging this a bit. it’s a first for me, all hints, tips and comments really welcome.
There were some made up hexies left over. So I made a bag decoration.
And a pin cushion.
Both of which may be gifts. The bag was bought from Hobbycraft otherwise everything else is scraps. I really like the bag, I may make more…
Now to go and see what others have made. Last month had a totally fantastic variety of scrap happiness I thought.
