Hexie UFO sightings

I also made time to work on hexies over the long weekend...you knew I would, right?!


First order of business was this little table topper. I had made the hexie puzzle section with rainbow batiks to show some students that you didn't have to make a large quilt to try the pattern. I pulled out the papers and opened up the outer seam allowances, spray basted it to batting and a perfectly matched batik. I used a stencil for the quilting design and machine sewed the binding on. I need a travel project for a meeting tomorrow night - binding is perfect!


My next project was to finish up this rose for my owl project. I have another one cut out that I will work on at Hexie Night this Friday. I'll try to cut out the (last?) 2 roses this weekend. I'll be on ambulance standby for 4 hours at the local football games Sunday and I'll need something to do...


I also worked on my hexie puzzle project for quite a while. I finished up the last 3 stars that I need and worked at adding in the 2" solid hexies. I think Midgie gives her approval. I'm sure she wants a treat for posing so nicely.


My last project was this little kit from my guild secret sister! It worked up quick and easy and there is no binding - I just need to decide how to quilt it. Thank you secret sis!

I don't know how you do it all, Sarah. I love the little rainbow batik project! Put batiks with black and I am sold!! : )
I hope there are no serious injuries at the football games.
My oldest son played football his freshman year and at the first game of the season the ambulance was called twice and a third player was taken to the emergency room in a car because the ambulances were both busy. I was thrilled when he decided to do track instead!

what a lovely collection of EPP. I am fascinated that you have used so many different shapes in these, must try and make some but not sure where to start!
