Shop hopping

I had the privilege of going to 2 quilt stores that I had never been to in Oklahoma.  One was in Hennesse,OK and the other was in Guthrie. It was a lot of fun. I came home with some fabric.  I will post that picture later.

Still here

I know that it has been awhile since I last written in my blog.  I am back in school , which takes away my time . I have one more row of hexagons to make and sew onto my Martha Washington Flower Garden quilt. 36 hexagons. I am so excited. Here are some hexagons that I have been playing with.

This quilt is slowly coming together. I am working on the edge of the quilt. Right now I am adding a row of the cream fabric. As I work on it, I am thinking about how I will complete the edge. I plan on making the edge straight and adding some fabric around it. I hope to have the quilt done in a year. That is my goal. A little at a time.

Disappearing nine patch

I have a whole drawer full of 3x3 squares from my hexagon quilt. I decided to sew them into 9 patch squares. Then I cut the nine patch in half both ways and sewed those squares together, making the disappearing mine patch. I then put  a gray square in between.

Here is the quilt on my display wall.

Putting the puzzle together

As I work on the edge of this quilt, I feel like I am putting a puzzle together. I figured out the layout of the hexies. I also figured out how many that I will need. This layout is just for the 2 sides. The top and bottom will be a straight row of hexies. I am going to make myself take a break for about a month. My wrist is hurting a little bit. Hopefully I can get some sewing done. I have several projects that are close to being done.

Where has time gone?

I noticed that it has been awhile since I last posted in my blog. I have been keeping busy. My Martha Washington flower garden quilt is coming along. It is all sewn together. The only thing that I have left to do is to put a row or two of hexagons around it. I figure that I will be working on it for another year or so.

I have making small flowers made out of hexagons. I haven't decided what I am going to do with them yet though. Time will tell.

My two youngest kids graduated a few weeks ago. I remember when they were little munchkins, and when they went to kindergarten for the first time. Time flies, doesn't it?

Enjoying my day outside

It was a lovely day outside. After doing some yardwork, I decided to sit outside and sew. I took everything that I needed outside. I left my ironing board inside. The project that I worked on was my wagon wheel quilt. I have been working on it for about 5 years. I have even taken it apart twice. Here are some pictures. I played the rows of wheels on the deck and held them up with some cans from the cupboard. 😁😁  πŸŒΌπŸŒΈπŸŒ»
