Nothing I like more than messing around with paper and the Witches Broom. Many thanks to Carol for having me over for the day and to Olive for teaching Carol the Witches Broom 'technique'. These pages (I think) will be turned into a book. Look for them later in the year.
I belong to a sewing circle that meets once a month. They are a lovely group of women.
Sewing is not one of my greatest skills but seeing that I am a participant in the sewing circle I thought that it might be nice to actually do some sewing. This particular project has been going for as long as I have been a part of the sewing circle. It is finally starting to take shape. Sewing this type of quilt is very time consuming but really shouldn't take a couple of years.
First hexagon shapes need to be cut out of paper. The material is then cut out a little larger and sewn to the paper. These shapes are sewn together.
Initially I just put the hexagons together without really thinking of a plan for the entire quilt. This led to much unpicking and annoyance at the whole process.
I then put them together in a much more ordered way and it seems to be working out. It may get finished after all.
