I've joined 5 blocks to this half hexagon quilt.
I've also joined 5 blocks to this one.
This is the February block from The Hexagon blog BOM. It was a fun block to sew.
Six flowers are joined to this flower garden. The hexies are only 1/4", really tiny. Read more here.
I passed 1900 hexies on my La Passion.
And the last one is this pouch with hexies. I loved making it.
You can read more about all these projects on my blog.

The other one I basted today was little chicks:
For now, I'm making petals! I hope to have my computer back for next week's post.

Kaffe Fasset Fabrics and Neutrals
So you see I am moving forward but really all I'm doing at this point is accumulating "PETALS"!!

I'm telling you, it really pays to do your taxes! Or at least prepare to do them. On the shelf of papers I was cleaning off were two of my terrific candy tins I'd forgotten about and, in one of them, were all the black and white fabrics I was using for this quilt. Well, not all of them, but enough to finish this as a table runner, I think!

This project is being created for my daughter for her wedding, which has already taken place. She didn't give me fair warning, so what is a momma to do. This is the pattern block, and it will just repeat with the blocks offsetting each other. I just love the colors!! I have a ways to go of course, but I am stitching as fast as my old creaky fingers will allow.
I have tried the Sewline Glue pen to glue baste the hexies, but I'm not so sure I like how I did it. My first try, I was applying it to the fabric around my tagboard shape. It was not the right plan. The fabric frayed, bunched and the Sewline Glue just seemed bulky. I really want it to move along faster. Let's try this again! I know there must be a better way.
According to the Sue Daley site I didn't want it to be right at the edge. I think (that doesn't happen often!) Try the glue on the paper!! Tadaa!! Just try to keep it from right at the very edge where you will be stitching so that you aren't stitching thru glue. It DOES come off. What I mean is that I was able to take the paper out of the fabric when I wanted to. I was nervous about that.

Anyway, now that I can't work on my black star points hexagon until I find the black to make more star points, I decided it was time to do some of these, so I'd keep up with my goal of having something hexagony to post each Wednesday. (Is hexagony a word? You get it, though, right?)
This little guy comes into his own today, after more than twelve months of waiting!
