Delighted to say that I have now added in all the hexies of my quilt.
That’s enough to cover the top of a king sized bed. Next step is to sew it onto a sheet for backing. I went to my favourite linen shop in Scarborough and it’s gone, the shop that is. John Lewis it will have to be. The hexies all have meaning for me, so I thought I’d share some with you.
My starting point was these two red ones. The white with the red dots being the fabric from the first dress I made for Little Miss F.
The yellow fabric was another dress.
Blue floral fabric- bunting for Mr J and Mrs M’s wedding, waking dead fabric – mug rug for Ms J, pink floral fabric was the dress for a rag doll nearly 30 years in the making and finally gifted to Little Miss F. The bunting now adorns the shed in Mr J’s garden!
Blue flower fairy- another dress, green spotty fabric a toy giraffe, red and gold fabric a cushion cover. So many memories.
I also dug out my scraps of Christmas fabric
to make a few decorations.
The trees were adapted from a book called Scandi Christmas. The book used screws for the tree truks, I used scraps of brown felt. They are weighted with cloves.
I’ll be filling these with chocolates and gifting them to my son who is hosting Christmas for us this year.
And so we come to the end of Scrap Happy for 2019. Do check out the other scrap happy posts here, and thanks goes to Kate for another lovely year of these posts.
