Hexagons Again - & A Diversion


I am still hooked on my hexagons at the moment but I did take a little time out to make something else.


This is a book bag, designed by Marg Low that I decided to make for my mum as a gift for Mother's Day.  I have used the beautiful Rural Jardin fabric that I definately need more of to make a quilt in the future.  I am so in love with the colours and pattern, I can't stop looking at that bird!

 


Here are my fabric purchases for the week for Swan Lake hexagons.  I am so addicted to these little flowers and I just want to keep making more in different fabrics.



And seeing as all I seem to be posting about is hexagons, Phebe and Klosjes, I thought I would show you this quilt.  It is called Merry Go Round by American Jane and was made from 3 jelly rolls of Look & Learn.

Your new additions for Swan Lake are divine - what a scrumptious pile of fabric. All those little hexagons certainly are addictive.

I'm sure your Mum will love the book cover - it's really lovely.

Regards, Sue
