I've been working on this one for ages. The outside is hand stitched (English paper pieced with 2cm hexagons.) The left hand panel (with the pockets) is made ITH and has spaces for a small notebook, pencils and other bits and pieces. The large pocket on the right takes an A5 sketch pad. The whole thing has a hard backed book cover inside which made the binding tricky. That is my excuse for the dodgy corners!

Bravo! It's beautiful. I saw a lady on t.v. doing some kind of folding and hand stitching to create this style quilting. I've put a few together that way BUT good thing I did a sample because now I've forgotten how. Laying in a bag with some good ole other unfinished things to do.

This is really cute. You must have a lot of patience. Had I been trying to put this together it would have been in the trash very soon. I admire anyone who quilts. I have tried several times to quilt. My grandmother, mother and aunts made lovely things but I just never got the knack for it.

Paper piecing is very easy and relaxing. Find a Youtube video and have another try!

Oh! my goodness Sue, 2cm hexagons, I couldn't even fold the sides over they would be so small, you must have very dainty hands. My hands are huge (thanks to my dear old Dad). This is an amazing piece of sewing, you are an artiste for sure. Love Chris

Wow!
Beautiful work.
I would never have thought to look for dodgy corners -- so don't tell anyone and they will never notice!

This is fabulous!
So, maybe that's what I should do with the Grandmother's Flower Garden squares that I've been working on for 8 years (mostly off, but sometimes on). Doesn't look like I'm getting close enough to a queen size quilt. Mine is done by hand and I was enthusiastic enough to believe that I would also hand quilt it. Best intentions.

I find the hand stitching of the hexagons extremely relaxing and I can take it on trips easily. Don't forget to show us a picture of what you do with yours!

I knew it reminded me of Grandmother's flower garden.. Just keep on Jerrilyn. One day it will be a winner/Lillian

I hope I can finish it. Maybe when school starts back.
