Phone post–I'll format this better, later, maybe.
I'm in the parent area while my kiddo is learning ballet, in my lap is this glorious combo of strawberry, stone, aqua, & cherry red…mmmm, I cannot get enough of it. Anyhow, I am paper piecing 23 2" hexagons to make a little throw pillow (after being placed in a lucite box). This is the perfect project to have at ballet, gymnastics & soccer, too bad the hexagons are big, I will not have much longer to work on it.
Basting stitches in place, hand piecing hexagons now.
DEEP THOUGHTS, by Jem Handy
I really want to make a grandmother's flower garden quilt in a queen size. I want to take my time with it. I don't know what I want to use for colors, I will use tiny prints (maybe 30s prints) and I'm leaning towards the color scheme of the hexi pillow, I don't see tiring of it on our bed in 2016 when I finish it.
I am working on about 10 things right now, a part of me wishes that was a joke.
I want to blog more about my process with pretty much everything I'm making just to chronicle it better & for anyone interested in seeing things come together. I just do not take the time on the computer to write posts anymore. I might get on my laptop once a day–might. I may just blog more from my phone, the photos are not awesome, but maybe I'll save the camera for finished projects–I can handle that!
I have become a member of the OKC Modern Quilt Guild this year after flirting with the idea for a long time. I enjoy the group and our activities and look forward to years ahead! We have a group project almost complete and I'll breathe a heavy sigh once its done! I booked a quilt retreat for us, it is just after Thanksgiving, so, it will be a nice treat!
I signed up to do Pillow Talk Swap on Monday, very excited about that!
I am interested in the 4×5 bee, I joined that group this week!
I'll leave you with this bag that I made last week when I should have been working on my zipper bags…
