More Hexies



I only have one side of my border left to quilt! I'm almost done. However, I need something to do when I watch TV. Hard to machine quilt while you're nice and comfy on the couch! So, I've been working on my hexagons. I love making them although I do find them time intensive. I have another one all set to sew together and then I'll sew them onto my hexagon quilt top.


Isn't this yarn pretty? Not sure how great the color looks in this photo but it's a nice soft grey. It's actually meant for a baby project but I'm knitting a summer shrug for myself using this incredibly soft yarn. I think it will come in handy during the summer when the A/C is running full force.

I'm hoping to post a picture of a completely quilted Puzzle Box Quilt very soon! I'm starting to get the binding ready. A sure sign a finished quilt is coming right up!!

  4. Lovely little hexies, and I'm intrigued by your Puzzle Box quilt as my hubby collects puzzle boxes! Mechanical ones, not jigsaws. Look forward to seeing it.
