Finishing touches

Remember this post where I announced that Pipi's hexagon quilt was complete? (possibly the longest hyperlink ever!)

Well I was LYING! You would have thought that I was happy to see the back of making so many teeny-tiny hexagons, but NO!

At the end of last week I sewed up another 7 to make this little personalised patch on the back of Pipi's quilt.

I girl-ified the gender neutral colour scheme of grey, yellow and teal by adding a pink hexagon in the middle. When Pipi has her own room I plan add splashes of hot pink here and there including (hopefully) a framed bit of something from here – a very appropriately named local cafe (and cookbook) – I just love their branding (and their food’s pretty good too!)

Versacraft is ink that can go on fabric and you simply iron it a couple of times to heat set it.

Pipi seems pretty pleased with her now personalised quilt, don’t you think?
