Take a look inside though and it reminds me of the Tardis on DR Who. It's much larger than first impression and if you click on the photo, you can see all the antique sewing machines, mostly toy ones. We had a nice visit here and then to a curio shop and cafe for lunch before flying back to Australia last night. It was pretty hard leaving the Grandkids when miss 3 year old had tears streaming down her face at our goodbyes.Lurline is taking part in the Great Hexagon Quilt-along which I won't be taking part in but I did say I would show mine.
This is from Australian Quilters Companion Vol.5.2 No 18, designed by Kerry Dear and featured on the cover. I pieced it by hand and hand quilted it last year, its around 60" square which is a good lap size quilt. If anyone is going to make this, you'll need the correct templates from their website.
My other hexagon project is my oldest Ufo and is English Paper pieced. It's the Inner City pattern. I'd only have 3 or 4 rows to put on but I'm not feeling inspired to finish it. It served a great purpose during tough times so I'm not sure how I feel about it.
It's so hot here, even with the air conditioner, outside it's 39 celcius (102F) so I think it's time I disapeared into the cool sewing room. Some have asked me about the Jigsaw footstool pattern I did before Xmas so I'll get onto that in my next post
