Applique Tuesday

Finished all the remaining music symbol blocks for the commission quilt.
They go in D9P blocks
Seven D9Ps to go.  That little hand belongs to 
Alan.  He was helping and playing in the sewing room as I worked on these applique blocks. What an imagination.  He pulled thin scraps out of the waste basket and decided they were seaweed.  Got a train and flat car to take the submarine to the dock. Then got a crane to lower the sub into the ocean. Then he played rescue - saving a car that fell in, Winnie the Pooh, etc.  I just had to supply special effects sounds ever so often.

What are you working on?  Leave me a comment and I'll come over to check it out.  I'm linking to Connie's Linky Tuesday and Let's Bee Social.

Time for lunch - he wants French Toast with Applesauce and milk on  the side. Then nap time.

Design Wall Monday

Before I report, Hexie Weekend is still open, end Monday, midnight.  We love eye candy and we be pleased to see yours. Doesn't have to be Hexies, and can be an old post, too.

I started a new scrap quilt and am making a sample block - that used up a FQ. I also made the Block Lotto Sneak Peak - that took another F8.  I also made three blocks for my Mod, Mod sampler - another FQ. That's back on my design wall now. Lastly, I raided my stash for for a back for two charity quilts for a total of 1.13 yards. Donated a yard to Guild thrifty corner. So my total for this week is 2.38 yards out. Numbers on right sidebar.

As I said earlier - on my design wall:

New blocks are on the upper right.  I even sewed the right side together. It's starting to look like a quilt.

I'm linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday and Lyn's BOMs Away.  Drop them a line to say hello, won't you.

Hexie Weekend

First, I finished that half done hexie flower from last week.
I hoped to make more but I was busy finishing quilting my hexie quilt!

I want to thank Karen of Faeries and Fibres for all her helpful quilting advice as she posts while quilting her beautiful hexagon quilts.  I've learned a lot!

Here's a more frontal photo.

And the back.  I just love the back - looks like a whole cloth quilt to me. Just the binding left to do - my goal is to finish that by Tuesday.

Now I have to get back to my commission quilt, but I'm sandwiching another to quilt and cutting the binding strips for the one above.

What are you up to?  I'd love to see your project, hexie or otherwise. Linky below - it ends Monday, midnight.

With my love of eye candy, I'm also linking to Amanda Jean's Finish it up Friday, Sarah's Can I get a Whoop, Whoop? and Richard's Link a Finish . Lots to see there.

I want to thank you all who commented and my 326 readers. I so enjoyed your entries into this giveaway. Given the number of entries, I can't respond to all of them, but I read every one!  I learned I'm not the only one who can't work in the heat. So glad you visited and liked Rhonda's , Karen H's, and Karen's work.  I so enjoy going to their blogs and learning so much.
