More EPP.

Prep for month 7 Icecream Soda blocks was started this week.
 I've made 4 of the 8
& started number 5.

The next hexie in 100 hexies 100 days
As i've been making the hexies for 100 days of hexies i remembered that i wanted to start making some up for a hexie star quilt. Here is the first 10
Now I've just got to make a start on the equilateral triangles that join them.

Day 11 hexies &
 Day 12 of hexies. Bella has been very helpful this week by assisting me sewing row 7 on Purplicious Mischief,  cutting out backing fabric & being a hexie display stand. 😄😄.

Just so you know i haven't been just working on my EPP projects I've been stitching this on & off for a while.

Happy stitching,

My week so far

Some fabrics arrived yesterday so i prepped a few coffins. As i was trying to get a decent shot i was photobombed
I've joined in making 100 hexies in 100 days. I had a lot of hexies cut out & left over from when i was making the Vignette Hexagon Quilt. I now have a good excuse to get them made up & turned into something. Here is the first 7

Its already up to day 9 so i made the next 2 today.

More fabrics for my coffins arrived today so i spent a lovely afternoon prepping them
I totalled these with the ones from yesterday & last Friday & they came to 154. My overall total is now at 645.

Happy stitching,

FNSI August

I make plans but as usual they get thrown out the window. So next month maybe i won't sign up for the sew-ins or make plans. :). lol. I had wanted to get binding made for a quilt i recently had quilted but my daughter asked me to watch the youngest GS for a few hours. Sew what did i do for FNSI? I cut out more fabrics for my Coffin quilt.
Turned them into 70 more coffins
The inner ring are from fabrics swapped with me & the outer from my own fabric collection. Next up after the GS went home was to work on Purplicious Mischief. I added these last 3 blocks to row 7
Then i managed to make a start to adding that row to the top.
Only 1 block was connected before bed called me.

Thankyou Wendy for being a fabulous hostess again. Pop over here to find links to see what projects were worked on by  everyone who joined in FNSI.

Purplicious Mischief

Since i last posted i've added 2 rows to Mischief. I misread the email about Icecream Soda. The templates were only sent on Monday so still waiting for them to arrive.
The 2 rows on the bottom are the ones from this week. Over half way now & i started piecing row 7 together last night.

Happy Stitching,

Mischief

It is time to work on Mischief again. It's been too long since i touched it. Too busy starting other EPP projects. 😊😊.  I spent 2 afternoons & 2 evenings sewing row 4 together then Thursday evening attaching it to the other 3 rows.
Row 4 is on the right.

Last night i started on row 5. Almost half way to the 10 rows in my quilt. 😂😂.

I'm hoping to have this row attached & number 6 started before the next Icecream Soda templates arrive Monday or Tuesday.

Happy stitching,

Curiosity

Yesterday i was curious to see how many coffins I'd sewn together & how many are prepped ready to sew. The top has 241 in this photo
I added 3 more to the left side last night. The tray had 250 in it when i took the photo. Both the top & tray have coffins swapped with the online group.
Long way to go to make it 1000 coffins. I'll need to aquire more fabrics to add to make sure i don't double up. Then there are the half coffins & the side pieces. Guess I'd better work out an exact plan instead of merrily sewing along.

Happy stitching,

A quiet Saturday afternoon

I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday watching Hinterland on Netflix prepping more coffins. The inner circle are made from fabrics sent to me by ladies in our online group & the outer fabrics are my own.
