HQAL update ….

Hello and Good Morning

I am a new member to this group so here is a little about me and my project.  Formerly I only ventured into cross stitch and tapestry but I decided to have a go at patchwork and quilting.  I started off with machine stitched squares and what has become my Bee Quilt

which as you can see also incorporates a cross stitch of a bee on lavender (not my design) which is actually removable if the quilt needs to be washed.

Next I thought I would try hand stitching some hexagons and I was hooked – it is so absorbing and satisfying.  So here is my project that I am working on at the moment – I called it My Seasonal Quilt.

This is not all sewn together, just laid out for photo shoot.

So this was my initial layout of the borders to the central piece, but I kept feeling that there was too much white.  So whilst browsing the internet I came across the following and immediately decided that I would include it in the border design.

new border pieces

It will be following the original border layout, so eight dotted along the top and bottom and eight sewn in a strip alongside the blue and yellow strips separated by a white strip

Hopefully that is the final amendment.

Well that is all for this post, please pop along to the other members to see how they are faring with their individual projects.  If you would like to join this HQAL group please contact Kathy for details. (1st name in list below)

  1. Love the bee cross-stitch – whose design is it? Your seasonal quilt is going to be gorgeous too, I haven’t got the patience for all those little hexagons, so I’m always very impressed with those of you who do 🙂
