It was a very quiet class today.
Josephine is getting closer to the final border of her Mrs Billings, and today we had time in class to have a look at the pyramid hexagons.
Are you sitting down? ‘Cos I had time to help Josephine with her hexagons, I ended up….yep, me….ended up making a paper pieced hexagon pyramid!!! Yes, you read correctly!! What’s more, I actually enjoyed it – shock! horror! gasp! Not sure if it was using Aurifil thread, or taking fewer whip stitches, but I did really enjoy it!! Wanna see?
While I was working on that one, Josephine was making one too, (not quite finished)…
And speaking of Mrs Billings, Miss Helen showed me the latest copy of Down Under magazine (issue 160) last week, which has a delightful piece on the Mrs Billings quilt, and Karen’s role in the resurgence of interest in this beautiful masterpiece….
