Viv brought along her 'Skies' as it is at the stage when it needs to be finished she  had decided on a soft hanging rather than a frame. We liked the way she had extended the stitching into the backing fabric.  

She was unsure about the wadding she was thinking of using.It seemed too 'bouncy' so the quilt makers among us thought she should reduce the bulk by separating into a single layer and then perhaps stitching through to incorporate the piece with the wadding  .It is going to look stunning and really captures the colours of her inspiration.

She then brought out this little box of hexagons.They are TINY !

She is piecing them by hand from little scraps of Liberty lawn.The finished patchwork will be a quilt for an antique doll's bed .A future heirloom.Any tiny scraps of Liberty lawn would be welcomed by Viv.
