Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 16 ~ More Fabric Fun!


Welcome to Stitch Sew and Show ~ Week 16

I have been working on the hexagons and diamonds for 

My Kingfisher Quilt

when I have not been outside gardening and inside spring cleaning.

I found this fabric when I was cleaning.

This fabric line is Cottage Joy by Windham Fabrics

It is a 2018 line bShannon Christine

I have bits and pieces of this collection and maybe enough of this large print yardage for the backing on my quilt.  I am now wishing I had bought more whe I saw it as I am really loving the colors and designs.

I cut enough circles of this print for one hexagon flower for the front.

I have been choosing only yellow fabrics for my centers,

but could not resist making this beautiful bee the center of attention on this one.

I have been sitting and sewing these hexagons outside, weather permitting.

Much of my stitching and sewing has been inside this week 

as it has been raining or damp and cool and very windy.

On Saturday, it was  a lovely sunny spring day so I did get 

some pretty little pansies planted in my window boxes

and have been enjoying them as I hand sew in my kitchen with my back door open.

When I was spring cleaning, I also uncovered this bit of fabric.

It looks like pages and notes by a Victorian naturalist or explorer. 

I have only a fat quarter and I have had it maybe 10 years.

I have no idea what the fabric line is as there is no info on the selvage.

Anyone know what this fabric is?

I am now trying to figure what I might do with this fat quarter for the upcoming "Wild" Blog hop, although I have already have project designed and started in different fabrics for this blog hop. This fabric does not work within what I have in the works so it would have to be a new (and small) project.

What would you make with this fabric?

Thanks to all who join in this week's linky party fun!

I love those hexies and that bee center is just so stinking cute! I have no idea what that fabric is, but it could be fun to play with!

Your hexies are looking good. As to that fabric, I think I'd make something where I could see it - like a placemat, or a little bin (either round or square).

So cute--hexies on diamonds! How about making a needle book?

I wish I knew what that fabric was and who made it I LOVE it. If you ever find out could you please let me know. Thanks
