Best Friends Forever

I have had Installment one for a couple of weeks now.


Best Friends Forever BOM
by Rosalie Quinlan

I have never really been "into" the framed Hexies but Rosalie's stitcheries have sold me on this one :o)
I have been playing with a couple of ideas, even drafting Paper Piecing templates for the plain hexies.  First up I was going to use a new range in at my LQS and then planned on using all my Bonnie and Camille Scraps.  

Something was stopping me. It just wasn't right so I just let the pattern sit there.
 Then on Wednesday I could hear a "scream".  
Yep "Scrumptious" was letting out an almighty scream :o)


Once the decision was made, it was so easy to start cutting :)
This pattern is "quilt as you go" and I need 60+ of the plain hexies plus the embroidered ones. I have started on the plain ones.


Here are the first 15.
This line of fabrics is truly living up to its name :o)


Now to pick some coordinating threads.

Hugs Sharon
