Another Baby Kina

My latest project has just came off my knitting needles (I haven’t even got to block it yet!) This favourite cardigan will be perfect as the autumn weather arrives. The last two Baby Kina cardigans I have knitted are now far too short, ¾ sleeves and a midriff is just not acceptable! So a new one in a bigger size will be very welcome addition to Olivia’s wardrobe.

You can find all the details on my ravelry page here.

Creating : Hexagon Quilt

English Paper Piecing Hexagon Quilt | www.mikaelabeth.com  I started this hexagon quilt in January 2011 when we had an unplanned extended holiday in Toowoomba with our family due to major floods and not able to drive home. Out of character for myself I didn’t bring enough projects to keep my hands busy for while we were away (I’ve learnt my lesson, always prepared with projects to keep me busy wherever we go). So armed with inspiration from pinterest and my sisters hexagon quilt, I raided my Mum’s fabric stash and started cutting, tacking and sewing together tiny ½” hexagons. English Paper Piecing Hexagon Quilt | www.mikaelabeth.com  These hexagonal shaped pieces of fabric have never been far away, alway got some ready to stitch in my handbag as you just never can tell when you have 5 minutes to fill (although they seem to be getting few and far between now with a busy baby to occupy those moments).English Paper Piecing Hexagon Quilt | www.mikaelabeth.com  So far I have made 40 hexagon flowers with a white border and 43 without, that’s a total of 2,297 individual ½” hexagons hand stitched together. I haven’t decided what size I’m going to make the finished quilt yet, at the moment I’m thinking a queen bed topper would be nice, but until then I’ll just keep making little hexagons. English Paper Piecing Hexagon Quilt | www.mikaelabeth.com  English Paper Piecing Hexagon Quilt | www.mikaelabeth.com
