WIP Wednesday

Probably better known this week as oops, I started yet another new quilt!

When I attended Sarah Fielke's class in Christchurch last year, my friend Anne worked on the Bangles quilt, from Sarah's book Hand Quilted with Love. When she pointed out that the print sections could be cut from a jelly roll, I immediately thought I should use my jelly roll of Oh, Deer! fabric to make one! I bought the templates from Sarah, so the only question was when. Apparently, now.

Or, soon. I've cut all the pieces I need (because I'm using a jelly roll, I'm making a slightly smaller version of the quilt than in the book, but it's not too hard to work out how to vary the size), but I don't have space on my design wall to lay the whole thing out at the moment. It will keep.

In the meantime, I've sewn up a single hexagon. If anyone else is interested in making this quilt, I have ressurrected the #banglealong hashtag on instagram. Come and join me!

This looks great! I've never tried this one, even though I've tried so many different hexie patterns. But I will.

So fun! That is one of my favorite fabric lines too, I can't wait to see more!

Oooo, I'd love to use my Happy-Go-Lucky jelly roll to make this quilt along with you, but I think it might have to wait. Looking forward to seeing your final outcome.
