Hand Stitching for the Week

Of course I did not get as much done as I wanted, but isn't that always the case!

So, back to what I did get accomplished. Yes, I finished quilting the last few blocks in the quilt I was working on last week. Yes, I did get the out side edge completely quilted. The binding got made today so the goal is to get it machine sewn on and then I will start work on the hand turning part.

My other "setting" time last week was spent basting hexagons and sewing one flower together that will be added to Hex quilt top #1.

Scrappy Hex Quilt #1

Yes, I hate to admit it but I have enough started hexagon quilts in progress that I need to number them. This is my scrappy flowers. All seven fabrics in each flower are a different color, for example 7 different red,seven different yellows, or seven different blues, etc.


  1. Great looking hexie quilt! Looks like someone sprinkled a bunch of flowers on the ground.

  2. Your quilt looks amazing. I would love to make a hexagon quilt one day, the scrappy effect is now on my list.

  3. Mmmm...very nice! Can't wait to see more! Looks great!

  4. Thanks for linking up to the hand stitching post! I love your hexie quilt...looks like a beautiful garden! You accomplished a lot this week!

  5. Interesting that you have so many hexagon quilts in progress that you would need to number them. You should do a post and share all of them.

    1. Thank you for the idea, maybe someday I will pull them all out and do a post on them but that will require some "digging" to find them. But, you never know when inspiration will hit and I will feel the need to go back to work on them.

  6. I like the effect that the different fabrics in each flower gives the piece. Very nice.

  7. Love your hexie quilt! The different shades of color really make your eye move across the quilt. Hexies are on my 'to do' list for someday.....

  8. Fantastic. I love hexagons.
