Another hexagon quilt...the construction of this one is a little different from the one I'm making for Anson (which still isn't done) and it sews up SO fast. I'm really in love with it. I promised to make some quilts for the raffle for an upcoming fundraiser. I wanted one grown-up quilt and we decided to go with black and gold since those are our town/school colors. All the black and white fabrics are some I've ordered from Sisters and Quilters a while ago (and have been hoarding) and the gold fabrics I picked up a couple different places. I'm planning on writing up the pattern for this. It's easy enough that I think anyone with basic sewing skills would be successful. Anyone interested in a little quilt along? I'll have more details soon.
And I wanted one to be something kids would get really excited about, and that's the Dr. Seuss quilt...which still isn't finished, but did get it's white border added this week. (This is the This Way and That pattern from Sister's and Quilters. Their pattern has a thicker patterned border, but I liked the simplicity with just white (and I might be hoarding the rest of my Dr. Seuss fabric.)
And I also got a back made and it's basted and ready for quilting. It's just a simple white back, with the random leftover ends I had from each row of strip piecing. I think it was just what the back needed to spice it up from boring to fun...and give my backing the extra width it needed to fit.
And if you've been looking closely, you might have noticed the last little sneak peek into a new direction I'm taking the blog soon. Anybody notice?
I've got some more projects to show you soon...but probably not until the SAT project is done.
Please show my sponsors some love...
