I decided to spend some time with the Pieced Hexies quilt. I knew I wanted to do alternate blocks, I knew I didn't want to do any complicated piecing and I knew I wanted to use 2 1/2" strips from batik swaps. Taking inspiration from Bonnie and Mickey's book, Ring Around The Hexies-order here or here-I decided on framed 9 patches. So far I think it works.
The hexies them selves are a combination of machine and hand pieced, then I am machine appliqueing them the block. There will be pieced setting triangles and a simple black border. I added 6 more hexie blocks last night. This top is taking shape.
Since last week, the Pineapple Crazy was put away, lots of time was spent on Mae's Flower Garden, the stuff piled on long arm table is almost all put away, the back for a quilt has been made. I have a feeling there might actually be quilting this week.
See what's on other design walls this week at Patchwork Times.
