Not long ago I finished up a small tablerunner made from the Quilt As You Go hexagons that I made during November. Each hexie was sewn separately with a front, batting, and backing, and then after I decided on a layout, I sewed them together with the ladder stitch.

A finish and something new
The ladder stitch worked perfectly for connecting all the hexies, even when they had different color backings! Here's the back side.
Then, needing some more hand-piecing to do, I cut a bunch of 2.5 inch squares of pink and white, and stitched up a (twelve inch finished) 36 patch block with a white center section. I think I'll make two of these in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month throughout this year.
The lighting on my cutting table always turns everything yellowish, but the white squares really are a pretty white on white with little stars.
One more set of pink squares is ready to go and that's what I'll be working on today for Slow Sunday Stitching. Joining in with all the stitchers at Kathy's Quilts.
