While on a little mini break in the mountains during the school holidays, I found myself with a lot of time to sit and hand quilt my latest patchwork efforts (started over here).
I am now a convert to hand quilting I believe. It is wonderfully meditative, portable and best of all I love the way the quilt feels at the end of the process - still wonderfully soft and wrap-able.
This one is now ready for binding, and already I am piling up fabric (vintage stash, I am determined to cut into it!) all around me and my head is swimming with ideas for the next.
Of course the Hexies are still doing their slow burn, kind of a background project, if you know what I mean.
Have you ever checked out this book? I found it in the library recently and oh my goodness, I am in love with the simple quilt designs, Jane has a wonderful way with textiles!
