Design Wall Monday

Ok, after yet another unplanned blogging break
I am back with my latest projects:
finished the quilting on Hashtag quilt today
and just sewed the binding
to the front.
It's my April UFO 
and I better get the binding
hand stitched to the back
by Wednesday April 30th...

Also sewn is the HST Charity top,
minus the border:
(oops, the quilt underneath 
is showing on bottom edge, sorry)

And I have been playing around with Hexagons
for the Quilt Guild challenge:
used some Honeycomb "Sunnyside"
and Craftsy Class pattern "Juggle" by Camille Roskelley,
trying to decide on background fabric:
Then I got Sarah  Fielke's book 
"Hand quilted with love"
from the library and
love her "Bangles quilt",
but not so much the hand sewing or y-seams.
So here is my easy Bangles approach:
sew 6 pentagons from her pattern into a hexie ring
and applique them on your background fabric!
See the first test ring on the left:

If I am attempting this quilt
I'll be using raw edge on white fabric,
even with some white edges showing thru
between the rings,
I imagine it's going to look fabulous!

So what have you been up to?
Hopefully some sewing made it into your schedule!

Back to sewing my binding,
the clock is ticking,


  1. Your HST charity quilt is just beautiful. I really like your layout and using the red, white and blue fabrics. What a gift this is going to be. I like the dark background on your hexagon blocks... the colors pop more. Great projects!

  2. Enjoyed your post and your quilts. Comical in a way and your humor showing through!! Keep on stitching!!


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
