One Flower Wednesday

A while back I started to make a hexagon quilt using lots of scraps that people had given me. It became an overwhelming project that I tired of quickly.  But I still had all those hexies, all prepared and ready to go. Then yesterday, we started our Tuesday morning quilt group again. I needed some handwork to do while there.  So I picked up the prepped hexies and started to sew them together.  I love how this is coming together.  And it will have lots of donated fabrics from quilty friends and will give me something to work on on Tuesdays.  Bright fabrics for our cold, dreary winter.


A couple of weeks ago, Bonnie Hunter wrote about words for the new year.  She thought 'balance' was a good word.  I have to agree with her. 'Balance' has been my special word for a long time.  So how do I work this into my quilting projects?  Well, this is sort of a new quilt.  But I am balancing it out with my basket hexie quilt which is almost finished.  And I am also working on a couple of other new projects, but I am balancing those out with a UFO that I am about 75% finished.  It's a Trip Around the World pattern.  I hope to show it to you soon.

I have decided to link up with The Needle and Thread Network and HeLP for Hexie-aholics for this week.

Balance is a good word. It's nice that you have become enthused once again with those hexagons.

Your scrappy project looks fantastic - especially with the white sashing as it really sets off all the fab colors. Do you remember who gave you which fabrics? Tt would be fun to label a few of them to remember your quilty friends.
