I've been preparing to do Karen's Quilt Along on her "Empire" pattern from the blog Fairiesand fibers.blogspot.com
I got ready with some prepared hexie's and off to the cool riverside to stitch.
I made two sets to work on, one using ancient purple from 1990 paired up with scraps from Dr. Suess fabric.
On the second piece I was brave enough to use printer paper and made a larger hexie template for 1.5 in. Hexie. I love the color for the second way better. Black print from the Miscelleny collection from Cloud 9 Fabrics paired with lime green spotted fabric from a series of fat quarters picked up somewhere.
I've purchased some gorgeous fabric from Cottage Quilting in Kelowna.
