Yesterday I found some color drawings that I printed out that I can get ideas for a Trick or Treat bag for Aniya and picked out some fabrics. I’m afraid that is about as far as I got with that project.
I got side tracked – I had gotten Williamsburg Beauty back out of the box to look at it a little earlier and moved things around on the wall and came up with an idea for the next border – it is something that I had been playing around with in my mind. I think the whole wall looks so pretty when I add more projects to it!! I am linking to My Quilt Infatuation today.
I got my accuquilt cutter out with the hexagon die that I have and just cut out a couple pieces using some of the fabric scraps that had been in the project box and played for a couple minutes.
Now this is not the correct size keep in mind – this is just to show an idea – I ordered the 1/2 inch hexagon set yesterday — the hexies I will be using are going to be tiny ones. I will sew one more almost solid border on next and then there will be a hexagon flower chain overlapping two borders. The beige one that you see now and another light color border. The chain will be from all the various colors that I am using in the quilt right now. The hexagon flower that I show is about double the size that it will be. Won’t be starting it now – I still intend to work on the flower border for the Postage Stamp quilt and get that one finished first. The chains will be made first – leave the papers in, heat set, remove papers, glue baste in place and appliqued down.
But while I had hexagons on the brain I decided to sew a couple of the neutrals together and a couple grew to 16 – I have the box of neutrals all prepped so it was easy to do. So more work done on Handful of Scraps. I had needed a little break from them but I think I’m ready to get back to work on them!
And a little more from The Final Frontier on Tuesday night. I am steadily working on this quilt almost every evening while I watch two or three episodes of The Covert Affair on Amazon Prime video. I am now in the last season of that show so I will be finding something else soon – I just can concentrate so much better on quilting if I am listening to a show and popping my head up to watch at the same time.
