Sunday stash #23 Kei Honeycomb <3

I love these Kei Honeycomb dots so much I think I need to get them in every colour available. :) Georgia sent these to me in a swap we did and it was such a good choice, can't wait to use them!

This morning I finished the Stacked Coins quilt. I will post proper pictures later (I think) but I 'll show you my best mitered corner yet. Not perfect but they look better with each quilt I make. I always use the method described in Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing and checked Denyse Schmidts Quilt book this time too but maybe I should look into to other ways of doing these corners as well. If you have any tips on doing quilts corners please let me know!

I love the toile/silhouette fabric I used here for the backing. The fabric is called Sweet Dreams and has a fairy tale kind of theme with castles, boats, animals etc etc. It's a Robert Kaufman fabric from a couple of years ago, I bought it on Ebay. If you have any of this at home and if you can stand to part with it I'd be happy to swap it for something from my stash! Especially the red colourway is so pretty!

Of course I've already started a new quilt (for my husband this time). One of my crafty new years resolutions will be to improve my quilting skills and I'm also thinking of trying hand quilting next year! Somewhere in the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing my Crafty New Year Resolution List with you. Hopefully it will help and keep me focused on really learning a couple of new skills, instead of going from one thing to another without really knowing what I'm doing or what I have learned! :)


  1. Hi!
    I think this is the first time I visit your blog. I got here through 1/4ofaninch .
    Congratulations you have such a nice things here.

  2. Hi! *waves back* thanks so much for your sweet comment!

  3. I love polka dot fabric and I don't think you can ever have to much of it. Don't you just love it when you can see your sewing skills improving?

  4. I *love* those honeycomb dots too (of course!). There is a grey one that I will definitely have to add to my year when I'm not feeling so shell-shocked by all the Christmas overspending!!!

  5. I heart polka dots! I have never read how Amy Karol does mitred corners, I really should read my copy of BTRS more thoroughly! I learnt to mitre corners from a youtube video, I need to be shown step by step I guess. I learn anything I want to know on youtube now!

  6. Thanks for dropping by my blog- it's great to meet other stashers, especially from so far away! Love the honeycomb, and of course the Denyse Schmidt fabric. Bec

  7. Those dots would make a great binding...speaking of which, love the binding on that quilt!
