Some of This; Some of That

Quilting a baby quilt - used a yard for the back.  Made 6 different blocks - used a total of 0.5 yd for those. Fussy cut a hexagon block - that only used 0.03 yd for a total of 1.53 yds. Not much, but that is much more than the zilch of last week - hehe. Net YTD out: 47.34 yards.

Here's that hexi block I made.  It's from Jodi Godfrey's new book, The Seedling Quilts.  She's having a QAL in October.  Here's her blog.  I would like to make all of the quilts, but that would be 11 more UFOs.  Instead, I'm going to make one block of each and make mini quilts out of them or maybe a sample.  I'll see.

After I cut out and prepped the pieces I sewed them together into a donut (as per Karen Howe's method at ) It makes it easy to audition centers and sew the pieces to the octagon with a continuous thread. I use Superior invisible thread to sew my EPPs together.

This is what it's going to look like when I've finished sewing in the center. Now to decide on a background.

I'm linking to Slow Sunday Stitching, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?!, Oh, Scrap (cuz this was made with two scraps), Sunday Stash , and Design Wall Monday. More parties under my tab above.



  1. This hexie is really cool. I love the fussy cut little boats. A sampler quilt of a design from each quilt in the book sounds a wonderful idea, though, the 11 quilts could be a fabulous thing. =)

  2. Pretty block - love the sailboats sailing around the middle.

  3. Beautiful! Love those spinning sailboats.

  4. Much better than 0. A yard and a half is quite a lot! I like that hexagon shape, and your wonderful fussy cutting; thanks for the heads up on the QAL and the link for her site.

  5. Very cute! A set of mini quilts or a sampler would be fun from those blocks.


Thank you for stopping by. It's always nice to hear from you. I try to reply to each and every one of you, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope you understand. Blessings.

SAHRR Round 2

  I've finished round 2 of my SAHRR (Stay at Home Round Robin).  This one is my attempt to make this quilt a rectangle.  Getting there  ...
