I realize I’m a year behind on this, but I’ve just gotten started making Hazels, and I gotta say…I heart Hazel! It all started about 3 weeks ago when The Blue One went to the quilt shop with me. He spied some lime green fabric that he ‘had to have’. I had no immediate plans to do anything right away, but I finished a couple of other things (teacher gifts x4) and the baby boy quilt top, so I decided to make something small. I whipped up the first set of Hazels last week and I wanted to add the glasses, but the kids wouldn’t let me. How rude!
I had decided to make pillows out of them, and decided a plain back is just too…..plain. I had a ton of extra fabric from the first set, so I made another set to be the pillow backs:
I’ve decided that the Hazels on the ‘back’ of the pillows are MY Hazels, so…
When I showed the kids tonight, they both decided that they liked the glasses (of course they would!), but I’m not adding them to their Hazels. I love how they look, but I am not a fan of doing applique! My edges aren’t perfect, but heck…nothing I ever do is ever perfect, so I’m OK with it.
It’s going to be a super busy week and I’m not sure if I can get the fronts quilted and the entire things turned into pillows this week, but I’m well underway.
I’m thinking of buying the pattern for the big giant Hazel and making a wall hanging (the baby-sized version) to put up in my cube at work. That one would have hot pink glasses, because I have some that I wear sometimes! How cute would that be?
