When the guests left I started with the process of appliquing my rainbow hexies to their background. I have chosen to put these hexies on a Kona charcoal backing like I did with my framed purse. Actually, I tell a lie there. The person that this eventual cushion is intended for requested the Kona charcoal. I just do as I am told
I am happily going around the edge, slip stitching away. Pricking myself repeatedly on the pins holding it all in place. Contemplating how I am going to quilt it. What I am going to sash this block with to make the cushion bigger. Admiring my wee hexies and admitting to myself that I finally have a great assortment of fabrics in bright colours that I love. But I might, just maybe, have to get one or two more this weekend at the Festival of Quilts.
I will be going on Saturday. I know Nicky will be there, and Lucy. I know that Laura Jane, Katy and Trudi can be found working. Deborah will be demonstrating. Who else is going? Let me know if you will be there when I am and we could always say hello.
