Monday Making 6/616


I took an entire weekend off from all things fiber.  Yup, no sewing or stitching of any kind was done.  Saturday was finally a beautiful sunny (no rain), but not too hot day and I spent it doing yard work and enjoying a cool drink on the porch.  Sunday it rained all day and made for cooler temps - housework with dinner in the crockpot and some company mixed in. I need to make it a good Monday Making day with Beth.  


I have the last half of the last circle in this group of 6 to finish up and then I can sew the row together.  Then attached it to the other row - a quick project to get the machine warmed up.


And this project is getting added to the mix.  I love the Grandmother's Flower Garden hexie quilt, but more than I know I will ever complete.  So when my mother showed me this 2006 Fons & Porter magazine project, I knew this was more my style.  I can do 16 hexie flowers with no problem and then get to play with some fun piecing.


I want to get this into a flimsy today - maybe even borders if I can find something on the shelf.  I know I have a back for it.

What will you make today?
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. That's my idea of a hexi project too. I don't think I'll ever make a full hexagon quilt, although I love a good Grandma's Flower Garden quilt too. Happy stitchin'.

  5. As usual I'm looking at your ironing board cover and thinking how pretty it is and how good it looks with your circles :) I don't like making hexies, but the project you picked will be so pretty.

  6. The Flower Pots is a cute project. I'm not one for all the hexies required of a grandmother's flower garden either. Love your pinwheels. I'm working on my RSC block for June.

  9. The pinwheels will make a fun and colorful quilt. Sounds like you had a wonderfully productive weekend that should let you stitch without the guilt of unfinished things elsewhere.
