Everything I said I was going to do yesterday – I didn’t. Even though the table was fully extended giving me room to work on the hexie border it was untouched. It was 80 degrees outside – time to work on the garden, spread tick pellets all over the yard and walking trail that I take in the property and generally just enjoy the sunshine! But there are things to share!
I was asked if I had ever done another hexie quilt. Yes I have – this one that I called Diamonds are Forever I hand pieced not EPP – it is queen size using one inch hexies. It is hand quilted.
I have also done a Patchwork of the Crosses – which are not hexies but long kinds – what do you call them? I don’t remember the name of the shape. This one also is hand quilted.
I was asked about the bowl on the table – it holds placemats right now – it is a replica of an old fashion dough bowl.
I did put labels on two older quilts – I found the labels put aside and realized I had neglected to put them on – they were already made so it made for fast work – now I am all caught up on labels! The baby quilt on the right is one that will be donated shortly, the one on the left is a favorite of mine – I called it Wagon’s West, it is hand and machine pieced and hand quilted, couch size – I do not keep a lot of the couch size quilts as I really do not use them often but there are two I love and this is one of them, I will be keeping it.
I have been getting back into a good routine of hand quilting on The Postage Stamp quilt – mainly in the evenings again – almost done with this side of the last row – I start in the middle though so I have 5 blocks to finish on the opposite end of the quilt when I finish this side – then the final border!

The fabric is still waiting for me to press it before cutting for the flannel quilt. It is to be only in the 50’s today so I will most likely get some work done today – I do have some errands to do but not a lot so should have time. That is all I have to share today – more tomorrow?
