So the next IG swap to work on is the Broadway themed swap. I had a long list from my partner of what she liked, too much inspiration to be honest and I was struggling to pin down an idea.
A few weeks back one of my IG friends was selling some Wizard of Oz fabric which I bought as you can't get fabric like that over here. So that narrowed the parameters slightly. I was still struggling though, until Friday night when the lightbulb went off.
After a day of sewing I now have the 88 hexies ready to go. I sew baste my pieces rather than glue baste. I know this is slower but I like to iron my pieces so I get nice sharp edges to sew together.
All in my basket and each fabric is marked so I don't get them mixed up.
My piecing diagram so I know what I'm doing ( well in theory)
So far so good. My only regret is that I didn't buy more fabric at the time as I don't have enough to fussy cut all the pieces. There's enough fussy cut though that you get the idea.
Right I'm off to sew now. Hopefully I can get a couple of rows together today.
