Hexagon, hexagons….

A few weeks ago I had to have some minor knee surgery (I tore the meniscus in my right knee) and was laid up for a bit. This meant no sewing machine~ARRGG! So I cracked open my Hexagons that I have been working on….ahhh there is nothing like hand work to pass the time! I managed to finish every single one of these!!! Yippeee! I am finally starting to see some progress!

(9 hexagon flowers)

So now I am basting some background hexies to put around these and the bigger flower from before Shown here:

Once I have enough, then I will make more flowers! Although one again I am able to sit at Nina, so these have been put back in my car bag for long drives.

In other quilting news, I have also been designing up a storm! I actually am in the process of writing up 3 projects and making the samples for the new patterns, so keep an eye out here in the next few weeks as they hopefully will be finished soon! I am excited as a couple of these new patterns are using some of the fabulous Lecien and Moda fabrics I got at Spring Quilt Market!Well, I’d better get cracking~the quilting bug is calling my name! LOL!

Happy Quilting!

  4. Hi, found your blog via mine. Love your hexagons – they are the best recovery handwork known to woman 🙂 And I do hope you will recover soon. I noticed you have a 3 and 5 year old – in about 2 weeks I will also have a 3 and 5 year old – they certainly keep me busy!!
