No WIP Wednesday shots today of more dolls quilts. I am *this close* (put your finger and thumb a few millimetres apart and thats how close I am!) to finishing, I'll blog them when all done. Instead we have a give away! If anyone is willing to take them!
When I was in Sydney recently, we had a fantastic day fabric shopping. At Material Obsession in the back room where they hold their classes, there was a basket of WIP's and I scored all these hexagons for $10.00. Bargain I thought! I can make some funky, retro styled hand quilt. 33 blocks, all ugly prints, well a few nice ones, but lots of grey and poo brown. Uneven stitching which I can forgive as my stitches are not the neatest but the thread happens to be bright red even though the material is a grey or blue, so it does stand out a bit.... But when I got home, I discovered why they were in the WIP basket. They don't actually fit into each other, they are all out! Some fit in one side and are 2 mm's out in the other! So then I thought, thats cool, I'll just pair them up and make little pincushions, like the one below which I have nearly finished. I sewed this the first week I was back and then put it all in the snap lock bag and shoved it back in the storage tub of WIP and patterns. I found it again yesterday and admit I had forgotten all about these hexagons and no wonder, they are so ugly! What was I thinking?
So I'm offering them as a give away. Anything to get them out of my house! If you like them enough to create some hexagon magic, post a comment and I'll draw a winner over the weekend. Then they can be someone elses WIP!
