Lily's Small Blog Meet

I'm pretty new to quilting, having dabbled with some basic rail fence designs and recently tried my hand at english paper piecing (I've gone hexie mad! Photo evidence here!), so I'm always on the hunt for inspiration ahead of a couple of pretty large scale projects which I have in the pipeline.

Lynne's blog 'Lily's Quilts' is a quilting goldmine, and I mentioned recently that Steph and I were lucky enough to run into her at the NEC Festival of Quilts.

Small Blog Meet

Anyway Lynne hosts a 'Small Blog Meet' which I thoroughly recommend checking out if you're also interested in patchwork / quilting as there are some great small blogs listed which are well worth perusing. A couple of my favourites so far include some gorgeous long-arm quilting over at 'QuiltingIsMyYoga' and a bright zingy wedding band quilt at 'DorisBatting'.

I'm always after more reading material so if you have any craft blog suggestions then do drop them in the comments below!

  1. Your hexies look perfect! I'm pretty sure I would go insane if I tried to make them, but I love them and can't wait to see what you make with them!

    1. I have a cheat! ...I don't have the patience for all the prep so I have little plastic templates instead of paper and a sissix die for speedy fabric cutting! Takes away all the fuss :) At the moment I'm stitching them into miscellaneous strips so who knows! I'm sure I'll find a use for them all.
