GG6 – Hexagon Stash Raided!

It’s been a lovely autumn Easter weekend, shared with friends this week – what’s this got to do with Granny’s Garden hexagons you may ask? I seem to be missing about 50 hexagons – whodunit? Hear dramatic music: bum, bah, bah.

Was it the Easter bunny? Maybe the Easter Bilby was running short of treats and needed them with the shops all closed for the holidays?

Well, nothing quite as dramatic as that, but amusing anyway.

On Friday, I decided to take out my Granny’s Garden hexagon sewing while my friend D and I were chatting. This lead to the kids, L, R and A, all wanting to make some ‘hexagon flowers’ too – hence my hexagon collection is down 49, but some other scraps have a new home and the kids have amused themselves with sewing as well as conquering the rock pile, a good walk, some museums and the like.

Here's the kids' hexagon flower creations.

And, here’ s hexagon mug rugs the monkeys made over the weekend – very fun-ky.

All in all it’s been a lovely weekend, nice to spend some time catching up with friends and stitching too.


Happy holidays,


PS: These Mug Rugs are just two Granny’s Garden flowers, with wadding in between and then the edges straight-stitch sewn together around the outside – easy!


About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.
