First off is the doll quilt I also shared on Monday:
I've made some progress on my Hexagon Puzzle. It's really fun to piece together all kinds of scraps - whether batik, vintage, civil war, bright, stripe, floral or whatever.
|Pieces that I have attached so far - I hope to maintain this diamond shape,|
altho I am not sure what the final project will be.

I have a pile of kites and triangles ready at all times to baste as well as some basted bundles to make the puzzle centers. This project seems to go fast but also slow because I need to make progress on this for a class and I am running out of time.
I also started a new project - are you surprised? I have had the papers to make a 9" card trick block since early summer but hadn't come up with a quilt idea or fabric yet. I was trying to think of something to demo for the recent shop hop and next to me was the fabric I bought last week in Penn Yan. One of which was this yummy teapot fabric - I bought the last 2 FQs at the store! Well, there were some fabrics in the same pile that coordinated with the tea pots. I won't go as far to say that they match but they do coordinate. I'll probably do 4 card trick blocks and then a simple border. Or maybe I should stick with one block and a really big border? Or maybe the teapots should be the back so you can see all of them without chopping them off. Who knows...
Anywho...now it's your turn! Show us what you have been working on since last month's Hexie Linky Party. We don't care if you have a new project, a stalled project, a sketch or an antique. Tips are welcome too. We are hexie-aholics and we need a fix! Just remember to link to a specific post, or multiple posts, and not your blog as a whole. Lemme know if you need help with this.
Happy Hexies and the next party is Saturday, 11/17/12.
