This Week's WIP's

I've actually got a lot done this week, but it's little stuff, so there's nothing super awesome to show you! :(

But I'll show you what I've got.

I've been working on my hexalong with the girls at Lily's Quilts and here's what I've come up with so far.



Hexies together
Here is a little hexie family that is different as can be.  I've been making what comes to mind, using scraps mostly from my pink, yellow, green and blue bag.  And this is what happens when you don't have a plan!   But I'm just going to keep going and see what it looks like in the end.  And it will be my very own one-of-a-kind quilt that no one will ever duplicate because it's such a hodge-podge.

And then there's this....

7 in 1
This is what you get when you plan.  I used 7 hexagons to get this pattern.  And I don't think it goes at all with the hodge-podge mess, so looks like I'll have another hexagon quilt coming together that will be more of these "medallions" put together.  It should be nice, although very traditional, and not usually what I make.  But that's okay.



Summer Sampler Almost finished

In other news, my blocks for the Summer Sampler Quilt are finished.  It was fun to make, but man those EPP blocks are crazy! They take so much time.  But the finished product is amazing.  And I also fixed the mosaic block at the bottom left.  I just couldn't leave it wrong.

No quilts finished this week.
Too many project for my little head to handle, including going through my three sons' clothes and handing down the clothes
that are too small to little brother(s).
Seems like I have to do this twice a year.  They grow like weeds! 

I'll be gone on a little vacation until next Wednesday, so enjoy sewing and creating.  I'll be working on my hexies, the crazy ones or the planned ones, I don't know, but my hands will be busy!

  2. Your blocks from the SSQ look lovely.

    I used to do the same thing with my DD twice a year - go through her clothes and weed out things that no longer fitted to either pass on to SIL or throw out! I can imagine it's a bit more tedious with three!
