After the success and sheer pleasure of my Liberty fabric paper piecing glasses case I was very keen to try out some paper piecing on something a little larger.
I still had my second bag of 50 precut Liberty hexies to play with from VeryBerryFabrics
So with plans to give our joint office/workroom a facelift in the next couple of months I have decided to piece together a Liberty hexie wall hanging to hang above my work station.
I’ll beef up my 50 hexies with another 50 from some bargain bucket Liberty Lawn picked up at Yarndale last summer. I’m hoping that the use of a single colour throughout the hanging will add some depth, bringing the whole piece togther rather than just a mass of mini print.
I’ve made a start.
But is this cheating? Look no stitches!
Jo from ThreeStoriesHigh steered me in the direction of this paper piecing glue pen.
I held off intially, thinking that I should be enjoying the WHOLE PROCESS and not just skipping to the piecing part but then I thought, ‘What the hell, my evenings are short enough.’
100 hexagons basted in one night!
Tonight the sewing starts.
I thought I would just leave you with this.
My daughter’s Bakewell tart; it was yummy! She has truly surpassed me with this bake. Jealous?
Love, Lucie xx
