remember remember...

 ...works in progress november!!
 I was so very close to cutting into my new fabric stash,
I'd even cut out lots of hexagon templates...whoa!!
the heat of the moment
is playing on the radio how very apt!
Remember the giant hexagon quilt I started?
Thats why I have spent all year gathering all kinds of fabric!
I think the crochet sorta took over the year..
I'd forgotten how much I do love patchwork!


This week I've spent many an hour in awe.
To check out what I mean just visit
warning..you may be there sometime!

I'm off
got diamonds to cut..

updated:
  If you want to give paper template patchwork a go
here is a tutorial of a similar design.

I really would like to have a go at patchwork one day. I don't know how you cut all those little diamonds so neatly. I like the way that each little hexagon is individual. Well, I will let you return to your cutting out. It looks like you have loads more to do! x

You are so neat as you work - I dont think mine would match up at all - I'd love to have a go - maybe start off with some simpler squares :)

Love the scarf in the last post

That looks great Clare!
Ever so neat and tidy and the colours are wonderful. :)
I would love to make a quilt someday, I just don't know if I would have the patience.
Have a lovely weekend!

The diamonds are looking great. I must admit I am really enjoying the paper template patchwork. I have just cut a load more hexagon papers out ready for the material...which I haven't cut into yet.

Have a lovely weekend.

Off to have a look at the FQ link now :-)

I switch between the crochet and the patchwork. Both are so good for sitting comfortably in front of the telly.
I ordered some fabric from Saints and Pinners the other day, so thanks for the link!

So pretty. I did some hexagons with a friend when we were in our teens to help out her granny who was making a charity quilt... I suppose I should give it a go again!

Thanks very much for your kind comment. The lush table cloth is one I bought in an Edinburgh charity shop (of course!). I was quite amazed by it - the fabric has clearly been specially designed for that checkerboard style of embroidery. I'm so glad someone else put in all the hard work!

Hello Clare! Thanks for reminding us about your tutorial. You make it look so easy. I must put patchwork on my to do list. Do you machine sew any of it?

Hi Clare :)

Love your patchwork, such a pretty design! I used to patchwork when my eldest was a baby (he is 15 now) It really is a most enjoyable craft :)

No prob about Wed. If you don't want to do this week for any reason than we can do it another Wed.
Hope you had a great weekend.
