Yesterday I finished off the piecing of Candy Stars, graded the last of the little seams, made the bias binding and got the little quilt basted and ready to quilt.
So last night I decided to play for a bit with some hexagons as I’m going to make another one of the hexagon mug rugs and prepare a pattern for it. Because, of course, I have loads and loads of hexagons and half hexagons that I had already printed on fabrics I was able to just get started. The pieced hexagons are very quick to stitch, so I should have this done in no time. I love having shapes already printed that are just waiting to come out to play. I have little boxes full of different shapes and it’s often those boxes that I go to when I have an idea and just want to see how it’s going to look.
I don’t have enough of the cupcake fabric left for the backing of another of the hexagon mug rugs, but found this fabric that I think is perfect for a mug rug backing.
I often share my pillow with Baxter. It’s very nice to have a nice warm, purring kitty lull me to sleep at night. But it’s a very good thing that it’s a king-sized pillow or else I don’t think there’d be room for both of us!
