I took a much needed break from Williamsburg Beauty yesterday after I squared up the brown border – I wanted to get that squared before I start work on the diamonds next week. Now it is folded and draped over it’s project box and off the wall – It won’t sit aside for long but I do want to work on a few other things for a little bit.
I have Handful of Scraps back up on the wall to view for a little bit and have scattered some of the completed “flowers” around the top of the quilt. It is a heavy concentration of dark flowers on the left side so some of those will get scattered more – that is why I need it on the wall now and then – I need to view color and see what colors to pick out next. I have none prepped right now.
Before I put the Handfuls quilt on the wall I decided to pin my 1/2 inch hexies to the wall to see what I had – 16 of them now – I have been working on these here and there – moments mainly grabbed when the news is on.
A close up of these babies – I think it could be referred to as a “postage stamp quilt of hexagons” I will just make these when I feel like it, cutting from leftover scraps now and then.
Speaking of scraps while I had some laying about from working on the diamonds for Williamsburg Beauty I thought I will try to keep up with trimming the scraps for my boxes and not let them pile up. I am linking to Tweety Loves Quilting today.
My one and a half inch box is starting to get some back in it – I used the whole box (it was about 3/4’s full) for the postage stamp quilt. No scrap is too small to save right! I got a queen size out of these!! it was like a free quilt – well other than the wool I bought for the border LOL – guess it wasn’t free after all.
And just a couple more added to the 2 inch box – this box it getting pretty full – might have to do another postage stamp quilt with these one day – will need to think of another pattern for it.
Working on this area of The Final Frontier last night after skipping Thursday night .
So other than making one baby hexie flower, cutting a few scraps, square up the quilt top before moving on to the next stage, pin things to the design wall – I managed to get in laundry- run to the clinic for my flu shot – pick up prescriptions and help Mike outside!! That was enough for yesterday – what well the weekend hold? I do not know!
