Six inch hexies are all sewn together into a quilt top and I've started hand quilting. It's a rainbow of some of my favorite things.
Fairies, blueberries, snowflakes, butterflies, merry-go-rounds, unicorns, pansies...
I couldn't decide what to use for the backing. I wanted to use perle #8 in a variety of rainbow colors to do the quilting but didn't want it to look too strange on the back. This fabric is a rainbow of flowers and the quilting blends in nicely.
After a day in and out of the garden - weeding and picking strawberries, playing games with and chasing around grandkids and getting ready for a camping trip next weekend I'm ready to relax, sit with a glass of homemade raspberry/rhubarb wine and do some slow Sunday stitching on my Favorite Things before bed.
