My Week

As i've joined 2 groups working on quilts from Vignette In Stitches & book 3 is nearly due out i figured i'd better make a start on them. Easter Saturday i traced out the stitcheries for block 1.
I've gotten this far in a week. I also traced out the stitchery needed for the Vignette hexagon quilt but haven't made a start on them yet.
Over the weekend i made a start on the hexagons themselves. I then couldn't decide on which pieces to use as centres. Made the executive decision to trace out all the jelly roll strips & make the leaves up & go from the with the blooms. This is how many i've managed so far.
When i bought my hat bow a while back the shop also had chests for sale. I wanted to get one but by the time i went back they'd all sold. I was in Ipswich the other day & noticed one of the cheapie shops had the hat boxes & other boxes in there. I wandered in as i had 10 minutes to kill before my appointment & discovered to my delight they had some chests there.
I am using this for the hexagons & i use the hat box to store the Vignette In Stitches pieces in. I'd been seeing on a blog for a while hexagons being made for a Confetti quilt. Curiosity got the better of me. I looked it up on Google & found where to buy it. :) This arrived last week.
 Not sure when i'll get time to make though. Too many other projects UFO's to finish & that i'm working on.

Happy Stitching,

That's a lovely chest and makes a great hexagon storage.
What size are the hexies for the Confetti quilt?

Wow. You've been stitching your little fingers to the bone. I love your chest. I have a half finished hexagon quilt there and I need to get on and finish it. All you Hexie girls are inspiring me.

Wow have you been busy - this is a LOT of handwork! Lovely, lovely stitching. Loving those hexagons, but resisting the temptation!

Isabella said...

Oh I like that pattern much better than the vignette one might have to look out for it thanks for puting it up Jeanette
