Design Wall Monday

Guess what!!
I've got Millefiore almost all done.
I was pretty excited when I got the final rosette stitched on Monday.
I parked myself on the couch with the tv remote and
went to town on her.
By 4 pm, she was ready for the outside fill in pieces.
As of Saturday night,
one edge has been completed.
I chose to do the half hexies first because I like instant gratification.
She says after a whole year + working on this quilt.

I needed something a little smaller than Millefiore to take to my
Wednesday Binding Friends group.
Mickey Depre of MD Quilts has a new On The Road project for 2016.
You can find the link for it in a tab at the top of her page.

I have been thinking for a long time what I would do next with hexagons.
Since I have already done one Pieced Hexi quilt for Taylor,
I wanted one for myself.

This new design is right up my alley.
Scrappy, pieced hexies and fun.
won this batik and posted that she didn't like it.
I commented that it would be perfect for my next hexi project I was planning.
Guess what showed up in my mailbox!!!
Quilty friends are the best!
So I've been basting centers for one of the steps.

So this is all I've worked on this past week.
I have a couple things planned for this week.
I want to pull a quilt top off Mt. ToBeQuilted and get it basted.
But first,
I need a new swim suit.
It's time to pull out some of that fabric out of the stash and sew it up.

Head over to Patchwork Times to see what others are working on.

I've never caught the hexie fever though every time I see a quilt made with them I think how beautiful they are. I'm ready for fall; maybe then I'll be a little more ready to do some quilting. blessings, marlene
