Hexies seem to have become quite a distraction for me. This week I've been finishing up the background pieces on a couple of the blocks from Faeries & Fibres Value Proposition QAL. That is the boring part of this project so I need to get them added as I finish each block. If I leave it, it is very likely it won't happen!
I think this is Block #6
Block #5 -- I think this is my favorite so far!
Block #3 -- I didn't photograph with the top up so just tilt your head to the left a bit.
Block #2 -- I even added some of the path to this one.
Here are the first six playing together nicely!!
And Block #7 -- well, Karen just posted it yesterday!
I'm working out of my "blended" hoard of fabrics which I accumulated during the last couple years I had my shop. They've been "resting" every since?! I was thinking yesterday that what doesn't get used in this project may find itself being moved into the general stash or liquidated altogether. If I haven't touched the stuff during the past 9 years, it apparently isn't that compelling. For sure, I have enough for a pieced backing!
And this week, I've been making some progress on machine pieced hexie project -- 1" hexagons just the EPP project above. And using the piecing technique featured in my workshop DVD,
This is the center motif -- it gets one more round. I'm also working on a set of six smaller motifs that will surround this center one. I pretty fast with both techniques but I like the machine piecing approach because I can do the seams as my "sew-offs" when I'm working on the deadline work!
Linking up over at She Sews! just for fun today -- love seeing all the fun stitching going on over there!!
