AND THE STOCKINGS WERE

hung by chimney with care--
these could be really addicting--
and very simple--
(unless you get a piece going in the wrong direction--
leave to me--good thing I have 'seam ripper' on stand by!!!)

Last night I decided it was time to lay out the hexie quilt--
and--
this is the shape it is in now--
very crooked and odd looking--
tried adding these but it still wasn't coming out with straight sides--
so what does one do?????
WELL--
today ones turn to the Internet and you search for Hexagon quilts--
I seen  hundreds of photos off all kinds of hexagon quilts--
and now I do have some ideas for finishing this quilt--
and--
But-- to decide which idea to use to actually finish it??????
And as it often happens--
I found some other really cute ideas using a hexagon shape--oops!!!

And my fabric orders finally came in today--

just white cotton for backgrounds--
and the larger package is 5 yards of white flannel for a backing on a quilt--
Guess which quilt this backing piece is for????
2 white on white fabrics for backgrounds--
and these two are just 'bonus' fabric that somehow jumped in the cart--
I needed a color fix by the time I ordered all that white!!!!!!!!!!!
the purple one is a larger design than what I thought it would be!!!!

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Be sure to read my post over on my other site today--
got me some photos of new creatures--

Enjoy the moments-di

  1. OK, something is in the air. You need to go read my latest post. After sewing black and white stuff for 2 weeks--I needed color! You know I love those colors. Strangely I did not buy any purple.

  5. The stockings are such fun. You did well on the fabric acquisitions. Looks like you've got some finishes in your future with all those backing fabrics.
