I’ve been pondering the design for a quilt I want to make for our guest bedroom, which is also going to be my sewing room once I find a suitable desk. The room is painted a pale yellow and is full of light, but it’s currently very bare, so I want to inject some colour.
Then I came across this beauty. It’s the Boho Honeycomb Quilt designed by Erica a Kitchen Table Quilting, and it incorporates the new hexagon precuts from Moda. And that’s where I hit my first roadblock. For all my searching, I can’t find them in stock anywhere in the UK, and with shipping from the US, it’s hardly worth the convenience of not having to cut them yourself, so I’ve resigned myself to having to cut them myself – I’ll only need 36 after all, and they’re not tiny. But if anyone knows anywhere in the UK that stocks them, please let me know!
So anyway, next up was deciding on a colour scheme. I wanted to keep it fairly mellow, but not bland, and I knew I wanted to use grey for the spaces in between the hexagons. I looked at print after print after print, and couldn’t find anything that felt right. And then it occurred to me to use solids, and everything suddenly fell into place.
Here’s what I came up with:
I’ll need about a metre of each, except for the dark grey that’s going to be the “filler” colour of which I’ll need two. I’ve not yet decided on backing or binding, but I’m a heck of a lot further on now than I was before. My next problem is that I will have to wait till my next pay-day to actually buy any of these fabrics, since my wallet needs to stay under lock and key till then.
But not to worry, I have plenty of things to occupy myself with until then. I still have to finish my two hexagon cushion covers, and two more in the same fabrics made from hst:s, some place mats for my mum, and some other bits and bobs for around the house – and I have the material for all of them already.
Oh yeah, I forgot to say that you can also find me on Bloglovin now.
