Summer Garden

Wall hanging designed and made by Cathi for an Internet blog swap. It measures approximately 18 x 20 inches.

Shapes used: .75" hexagons from Collection #3 to make the flowers and the green part of the garden.

I wanted to applique the garden on to the striped fabric so used the lines printed by Inklingo on the outer hexagons to stitch on my sewing machine but had no thread in the needle. I also used a larger needle than usual. This basically perforated the fabric making it turn under beautifully -- a variation on the backbasting technique.
