About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Elaine's Grandmother's Hexagon Quilt

"Grandmother's Flower Garden" is a traditional patchwork pattern. You can Google in 'Images' to find hundred's of examples of quilts using this pattern.
Here is 'our' very own example by Elaine, our quilting teacher. 

I asked Elaine who she made it for (she is always making things for other people) and she said "Just for me".
So this wall hanging is called "Just for Me" by Elaine.

It took her 18 months to make between other projects. It is made up of tiny hexagons. It is all hand sewn using the English Paper Piecing Method.
She used a pattern from a book called "Grandmother's Hexagon Garden"

Lovely lovely.
