Hexie BOM Table Topper!
I was feeling rather down when I went to bed last night. It was one of those days, like we all have occasionally. You know what I mean, I'm sure…
But this morning I found this on the Hexie Love Facebook page! Look what Cathy Mann did with the 2014 BOM patterns! She made this amazing table topper!
Here's what she said about it:
Hot off the press, my finished hexagon BOM table topper. I used 7 of the blocks, ( with the intention of making place mats from the others at a later date), and repeated that cute little bird design on both ends. Each block was made in the shape of a bigger hexagon and quilted with Perle no 8 and big stitching. I used another 200 hexagons for joining the blocks and more again for the back to keep the edge.Each shape is back-stitched with embroidery floss and embellished with beads, and all edges are back-stitched as well.
Thanks so much, Julia, this has been great fun! So looking forward to next year and the new magazine and BOM! ( some fabric accidently followed me home in readiness for it )
Cathy, you don't even know how much I needed to see this at this moment! I woke up in a blah mood and you put the biggest smile on my face! Thank you so much!!!!! :)
This morning I'm having a photo shoot for the magazine. It will be me, a camera, and some projects. Then I'll work more on my 2014 Hexie BOM quilt. And I'll make cornbread for my Thanksgiving dressing. This year we're scaling Thanksgiving down a bit. Fewer people. Less food. For the first time in recent memory, we bought a smoked turkey instead of my roasting one. It will still be a wonderful day though!
