A little shopping occured during my visit to Quilts in the Barn; two of Di Ford's patterns sort of stuck to my fingers and made the trip back home to Sydney. Good intentions were pondered - no new starts until something was finished.
The best of intentions were flung out the window last weekend and baby 1/2" hexagon papers also came home with me after a recent dash up to my "'local" Material Obsession. It's so exciting to start something new...
In the spirit of Deb from Needles, Sticks and Hooks and her totally fabulous DNQTTT, my version of Di's design has been renamed WWIT.
Di's pattern is called Drayton Hall. It's a medallion with the above large hexagon star surrounded by a broderie perse wreath and the four smaller hexagon flowers, then a very wide border of 2" scrappy diamonds. I originally purchased the pattern with the idea that I could machine piece, but now I'm considering hand piecing because I could do it on the bus on the way to work (by far my preferred method). These hexagons happened this week during my commute. (the centre star got a little design tweak).
I 'm looking forward to starting the broderie perse wreath...a new challenge and a new skill to learn. Just waiting for my background to arrive...but impatience will most likely prevail and there could be a shopping trip happening tomorrow.
