Some co-ordinating prints from Amitie Textiles, Bentleigh, and a lovely floral tone-on-tone cream fabric from The Quilters Patch, Moorabbin, completed the picture. My husband kindly used his laser-cutter to cut out hundreds of perfect hexagons from both paper (1.5in), and fabric (2in) - precision itself.
To be honest, the traditional hand-stitching of the fabric to the templates seemed a bit long-winded, so I resorted to a glue-stick. Much faster!
It's quite relaxing to hand-stitch the pieces into flowers, frame them with cream hexagons, then join the flowers together. Though progress is slow. it perfectly suits long evenings indoors, in front of an engrossing movie, with a glass of wine, winding down after the day's work is done.
