A few little hexies have been appliqued into place, on the front of the EPP Storage Carry All (pattern is by the Australian designer Lynette Anderson Designs). I used precut 5/8" papers for the hexies, and they have been hand appliqued into place using 80wt Aurifil thread and a very fine Clover Black Gold needle. These fabrics are from the Hollyhock Cottage collection, also designed by Lynette, and have been in my fabric box for a VERY long time. I picked out a selection of brown fabrics for this project, and the front of the case has been quilted very simply using a brown Mettler 40wt quilting thread and a Schmetz topstitch size 70 needle. I'm trying to use up some of my older threads, and when I first started quilting I bought reels and reels of Mettler thread in every available colour to feed my thread habit!
