We sat and sewed and talked and had a great time.  We decided to do a little gift exchange in December – anything hexie related.  It should be fun.

Design Wall Monday–August 18, 2014

Hexies on my design wall today.  They are all one inch hexies but the flower is on a 16 1/2 inch background for the Hexie BOM.  The smaller on is for my SBS (Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler) that I am still working slowly on.  The background on this one needs to be trimmed to 6 1/2 inches.

0814 June Flower and SBS block

I still am loving my background for the BOM but I guess it is time to decide on the sashing.  Julia is using 1/2 square triangles for hers.  I still need to applique the August block which is a Sun.

For more design walls, go to Patchwork Times.

Jeanette’s Row Quilt Progress

On Friday I got a photo of Jeanette’s rows.  She had worked on it at Quilt Till You Wilt and is up to date.  She is using all her scraps for this project and it seems that anything goes – from Kaffe to Civil War.  They all look good together.
