I have been randomly making English Paper Piecing hexagons since sometime last year I think it was. I would do a few from a stack of random scraps while watching a show or movie. When individual scraps weren’t big enough, I’d join them together to get a bit of a patchwork hexie. Mind you, these are one inch hexies so the scraps had to be fairly small to require preemptive joining. This year I started joining some of them in combos that spoke to me.
The last photo in the gallery is of a couple of predominantly green fabrics that I’m thinking of using as an applique background for the shapes. Several ideas have presented so I’m simply letting them all simmer in the back of my mind.
Here is the Candy Pop Quilt all done! It is machine quilted using my Singer 401A and a wide zig zag style stitch. Took a bit of a short cut and folded the backing over as the binding as I just loved the fabric.
And here it is hanging on the new to me quilt rack.
I have all the sashing on and the rows together! I was going to put a border on but love the way it looks as it is. So that makes another top done! The fabric I was going to use for the border is now going to be the backing. I’m toying with a couple different ideas for the border.
The latest quilt top to go under my needle. I am using the new to me 401 to piece it. The first set of blocks is assembled. Three more to go. While I’m stitching I’m considering putting sashing between the blocks.
