First of all, I would like to thank you all for your kind comments on my hexie / grandmother's flower garden quilt. I don't personally know many quilters and it means alot to get encouragement here.
It is a beautiful day here in northeast Florida-72 degrees compared to 38 degrees just a few days ago. The Jasmine is already blooming!
I have completed one more hexie star with only one more to go.
I really like the colors on this one.
I'm getting so close to the end, its exciting! But then I remember that I still have to put all of the stars and circles together. Boo! That's gonna take forever and I have to do it at home because its too big of a project to take with. I've been scanning Pinterest to find another take along hexie project. ;-)
Here is a top I made to donate. Its twin sized and made of scrappy 4.5 inch squares. I give some tops to a friend whose guild makes quilts for kids in foster care- I think the idea is for them to have something of their own.
Whenever I have left over fabric that's not big enough to fold back up, I cut it up in to useable pieces, like 2.5 inch squares or 2x3.5 inch bricks- you get the idea. Anyway, my 4.5 inch bin was overflowing, so I tidied it up a bit and made a top. It was super fast, only took a long weekend to make.
As I may have mentioned, I am addicted to thrift store shirts, so I have tons of plaids. This is an example of making do with the fabric you have. See how the borders are different plaids? This took less than 2 shirt fronts and backs, and I still have the sleeves! The shirts I buy usually cost a dollar or less, so its a bargain and adds lots of variety. Last week I found some 3x ladies pj's, so look for girly donation tops soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
