I just got onboard the HEXI train! Better late than never!

So here I am late to the party but catching up fast~ I am learning lessons quickly as I ordered a very large 3 inch hexi at the start and paper along with it~ When it arrived in the mail I got a good laugh at the size of it! But it really suits my Kaffe fabric stash~
 

 I also found some lovely threads for the hand quilting later....
 

So I will call this quilt "The Collection"

And of course all around and in between I am quilting lovely quilts~ This is one of two made by Colleen for two sisters~ the other is on my frame~


Some "loveletters"

 
Millie always ready for errands or treats~ She looks innocent right here doesn't she? Well she just stole my LAST hot cross bun from the bakery.....it was sitting by my coffee.....I left for a minute to put the heater on..on my porch and when I came back.....
well....you snooze..you lose....said Millie.

Pretty pink quilts~pretty baby boy quilts~ 2DWR's in progress~♥♥

   
Cute as a button quilt for a sweet baby boy~Lots of LOVE from his MiMi~♥
 
 Progress every day on 20 Clinton Street~ I think the secret to a DWR quilt is to do a bit every day~like rug hooking....and it builds itself! Row by row....loop by loop as Deanne Fitzpatrick would say....
 Inspiration everywhere this month. I am looking forward to the article in ARTIST & MAKERS about Tula Pink!
 Sweetest quilt ever if I do say! This was a joy to make! Believe it or not this was the very first quilt I have made and sold~(!)

Time for the quilt to go.....last picture!
 
 
And here is my collection for the 2nd DWR which will be for a wonderful auction~ I will keep you posted in case anyone would like to take a chance!
