Well this is what happens when I start pulling things out that I need to finish. Although I do start lots of projects I am not one to let them sit around for years and eventually I finish them, change them to something else or give them away. Once in a while I like to have a “clean slate”.
I had twenty of the hexi flower blocks cut and fused. At first I was going to make a throw sized quilt and use for a quilt as you go demo. But I changed my mind (see what I mean?) and decided to make two baby quilts. The top on the left is done and ready to quilt. The blocks on the right need to be satin stitched and pieced. I think they will make great baby quilts. I left the pink blocks on one of my machines so it will be in my way until I finish it!
This is one I put away in frustration. The four patches are tiny (1 1/2″ squares) as is the black sashing (also 1 1/2″) which is where the frustration comes in. However, I do like it and I am over half way done (before borders) so I think I will try and do a row each time I am in the studio. You cannot see from the pic but the neutral is white with tiny black polka dots. I still like it so I will persevere.
Then I had this quilt loaded. When I make things from old linens I have small pieces that I just hate to throw away so I used them in my making fabric method and I think this will be a pretty quilt when I am finished. I do love using up all of the old things. All of these pieces were too small for my cards.
I have an unexpected sew day tomorrow. Yippee maybe I can make some progress on these projects (or start something else) or More than likely both.
