Big & Smalls Quilt

My scrappy and very happy, Big & Smalls quilt is in the newest issue of Homespun Magazine (June/July 2024 issue). It doesn't matter how many quilts you have published, it's always exciting to see your project on the pages of a magazine.

This quilt was a long-term project for me. I started basting these scrappy hexagons after finishing my Kingfisher quilt (that was such a fun project). I'm guessing I possibly started this around 5-6 years ago.

This became my go-to travel project. Car trips (while husband drove) or waiting for kids in the car. This project travelled with us to US holiday and a cruise to Mexico back in 2019 and I think it may have even gone with us to Europe in 2018. We drove right across the south of England and I remember having my hand sewing during that adventure.

English paper piecing is just so wonderfully portable. You don't need a lot of supplies to put the hexagon flowers together, or even to applique them to the background squares.

Homespun Magazine is now available for sale at newsagents or your local quilt store. Available via zinio for international friends.
