Back to the Hexies

Handful of Scraps, Postage Stamp Quilt, Wagon’s West (dresden plates)

The hexies are calling to me they can be addictive.  I think today I will pick up on some of the neutrals that need to be put in place on Handful of Scraps.

This area needs only two on the side of the yellow.  That will be quick.


Then I need to go around the brown the hexie on the right and the green hexie on the left needs a whole of neutrals around it.  Those areas will be the focus of the next bit of work on this top.


These flowers stitched down, I will add a little accent to the burgundy flower, not sure if I will add any more to the blue/green.  The leaves will all have a little accent on them also.


Some more bricks were cut, left overs immediately cut into 2.5 inch squares and 2 inch squares.   Some white is now ready also.


I went through the boxes on the shelves and pulled some green and some browns that have a bit of red in them as well.  All kinds of color going on in this quilt.


I continued to work on this side of the Wagon’s West quilt last night I will roll the quilt down just one more time I do believe and that should be it.

    Love seeing the close-up picture of Handful of Scraps….
    You are really getting near the end of the quilting on Wagons West!
    I am almost ready to start sewing my rectangle checkerboard blocks …. mine will be scrappy, like your bricks… my white rectangles will be scrappy as well (I have a lot of tone on tone whites in my scraps stash)…. I hope to be able to start on it sometime next week.
    We will see!
