The last time I showed a photo of my hexie handstitching project was before our trip to California, and I was getting it ready to travel along with me.
Today it looks like this -
Just three more hexies to sew on to complete the blue row on the last long side! I know I'll be working on this today.
Next I have to bring the blue around the ends - here you can see what will happen there.
I'm still planning a final row of a neutral color going all the way around, and then I will have to figure out how to finish this tabletopper! Sharing at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
I also finished sewing my Happy Birds quilt top together this week! I started making these blocks back in the spring, and just made a few every now then when I was in the mood.
The 5 inch centers are cut from my (more extensive than I realized!) collection of bird fabrics, and they are bordered with 2.5 inch strips of darks and lights, all from my stash.
Some favorite blocks -
Right now the quilt top measures 51.5 x 68.5, and I have to decide if I want to add a border. It's going to be a couch quilt for my husband, and I'm sure he would like having it wider and longer!
Once I decide on the border (or not!) this one will be the next to be quilted. Sharing at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!
