I like when ideas fall into my head without thought or endless pondering. How I planned to quilt the hexie cushion cover came to me yesterday. It might not suit all, but I do feel it will suit the recipient - and it will hold the layers together which it is all about after all.
I think I will let the stitching do the talking for me. Easiest way.
I embroidered flowers, or parts of flowers, all around the charcoal border. I just went free hand and stitched what I wanted, only staying within the rainbow colour scheme.
For the hexagon part of the cushion I did one flower, on the really dark purple hexagon. The rest I am 'tying' down with three simple stitches, at the corners where three hexagons meet. I have a lot more of these to do still.
Besides being happy with this 'quilting', I am feeling really virtuous because I cleaned my oven today. That does not happen often. Thankless task. I cook. A lot. It just gets dirty again really quickly. But this time I have an ace up my sleeve. I purchased one of those Teflon coated oven liners. Next time round I should just be able to pull that thing out, clean it and shove it back in. Job done! Yes, I am more than capable of ignoring the racks and telling myself if the bottom is clean then all of it is clean. Really, perfection is highly overrated.
