One More.....

One More Hexagon!

This is the latest hexagon I've made. If you look closely, each hexagon represents a Mother Goose rhyme. This fabric is left over from a baby quilt I made a fellow worker a few years ago. I love being able to use up my scraps!!

One More Finished Quilt!
My Christmas Wreath Twister quilt is finished! It was so fast to machine quilt. I outlined the actual wreath but not the individual twisters. I wanted the wreath to look as one object and not a bunch of twister blocks put together. I meandered in the background. I didn't quilt the border at all. I love the border fabric and didn't want to take away from it. It's only 2 1/2 inches wide so I thought it would be all right. I did outline the seam where the border is attached to the wreath. So far, so good!




Here's a close up of the quilting, border and binding.

One More Quilted Block!

This is the tenth block I've quilted. Two more blocks to go! This one was a continuous line design. I sewed around each point and sewed a leaf in all of the green fabric areas. I think I've made progress in machine quilting since this block took me about 30 minutes at most! I'm a little more confident and I don't feel quite as scared as I prepare to quilt.


I'm hand sewing the binding on my mystery quilt but it's not quite finished yet. I'll be showing you that some time next week, hopefully!! Have a wonderful weekend and keep sewing!

    1. Yes, Julierose, that is a toile! I love them too! I think they're very elegant. Hexagons are fun to make but I also forget about them and then go back. It's a nice project to keep hanging around!
