After my last finish, I was seriously missing hand quilting. Within a day, I dragged out an old work-in-progress, my Chinese Lantern Hexagon quilt. I love this quilt. Really I do. But I hadn’t quilted on it in months – mostly due to hand quilting fear. Happily, I’m much more comfortable with it now.
This is a quilt I started a couple years ago. It didn’t have a pattern. I just drew a large sized hexagon template, cut them out, and y-pieced the rows together. At about the same time, I went back to work after a five year baby-making/home-making mama leave. Hence, the drag in it’s completion. I’m back on maternity leave and am really enjoying getting to craft when I can. (Not to mention, being able to be a stay-at-home mama for a year!)
I’ve also been fitting in some time for knitting while watching the occasional show with my husband and waiting in the pick-up line at school. I’m working on a little romper from Bergere de France for my little niece. Hopefully she’ll be able to wear it next summer. I’m just about half way through and loving it.
The vintage feel to this pattern really appeals.
Hope you’ve had a crafty week too! 🙂
