FAL -Hexiestars cushion

My day started with the return of my quilts from Quilt and Stitch Village, which also meant the judges comments! I was braver than I thought I would be taking a peek at them and thankfully they were better than I expected πŸ™‚ Here are the comments for the Brit Print Girls Medallion Quilt

and the comments for the Never Forgotten improv quilt. I wondered how the judges would react to the improv quilt as it was a very traditional show, so I was delighted that they liked my “refreshingly different interpretation of the theme” πŸ™‚ Also delighted that there were no ticks in the “needs attention” box!

After such positive comments I will be brave enough to enter another quilt competition in the future πŸ™‚ This afternoon I managed to squeeze in some much needed sewing time and finished up my Hexiestars cushion! I’m so pleased to able to cross this one off my FAL list πŸ™‚

It was really difficult to get a decent picture today as it was so grey outside but I was too impatient to take finished pictures, sorry. I didn’t want to compete with the colours of the stars so used a grey variegated Aurifil thread to echo quilt the hexagons…
and create a wonky asterisk through the stars.
I’m thrilled with how it has turned out and I’ve been overwhelmed with the response to it over on Instagram πŸ™‚ Don’t forget the templates are available here if you fancy having a go yourself! I’d love to see your version if you do, so please use #hexiestars over on Instagram or add a picture to our Flickr group πŸ™‚

Catch you soon x
