Not much creative stitching going on here over the last ten days, but there’s been solace in the quiet in-and-out needlework involved in applying a binding – a process I always find pleasurable.
I have to admit I went a little cold on my Candied Hexagons quilt towards the end of stitching together my hexagons, and I still regret the inclusion of a handful of my fabrics. However my love was rekindled somewhat when I began to applique those little triangles along the outside border.
There are many versions of this quilt around, all of their designs having their origins in a stunner of a quilt made by Frederica Josephson. Kim McLean made hers in reproduction fabrics, and Kaffe Fassett’s adaptation glows dramatically.
