Before I do anything this morning, I need to thank everyone who left a comment on yesterday’s post! My new to quilting daughter was floored and flattered and REALLY appreciated the encouragement!
I promised to share what Erin made for herself using the scraps from the project that she made for me!
She found a FREE pattern for this runner…using hexagon shapes on Hamels’ Blog..if you go HERE you can follow the links! It’s Moda’s Honeycomb quilt/runner and the pattern shows in detail how to put these shapes together…by MACHINE!!!
This is not for the weak of heart! I have tried this (making a hexagon ball by sewing the shapes together by machine…and it just about did me in!!) but Erin followed their instructions and as you can see she now has a beautiful runner…which she is currently BIG stitch quilting!! I LOVE this runner…and may have to give this another try!
Erin was telling me that Moda has come out with the Honeycomb Pre-cuts!! I love pre-cuts! They make the job more precise and easier…hopefully!! I will have to keep my eye open for a package of Honeycombs…and give this project another go!! It’s so nice to have a quilty daughter who knows these things!! :o)
SEW what does a daughter do if she DOESN’T quilt and she wants to give her mama something REALLY special? She phones Temecula Quilt Co. and has them mail her mama a Gift Card!!! This is what my youngest daughter did…and it blew my socks off!! …OK…make that blew my sandals off!! Looks like I am heading to Temecula in the very near future!! What I would like to know is, HOW did she know about Temecula Quilt Co.? Hubby is oblivious to the names of shops…so it wasn’t him!! I wonder if I was blabbing about shops to my Quilty daughter? Regardless…I am one VERY happy quilting mama!!
Wait till you see what else came in the mail yesterday!! I will have to share it with you tomorrow…all of a sudden there is SEW much blog fodder! When it rains it pours…my cup runneth over for sure!
Have a super Saturday and thanks for stopping by!! (Four more days until that jolly fat man with the beard comes down the chimney…are you ready yet?)~P
