These are 12" blocks for the raffle quilt inspired by the book Red and White Quilts: Infinite Variety. Aren't they fun?
I bought this nice assortment of fabrics and went back a third time to buy the dotted stripe in the background.
Rachel surprised me with this fabric :) It'll be perfect for my Morris hexies.
Speaking of hexies here is Morris #6 South Kensington Star. I couldn't believe how hard it was to make 12 points come together in the center. I ripped out the first version and pieced it all over again but I'm still not happy with it. Now you know why I sewed the little hex over the seams in the center! I'm determined to try it again.
After feeling a little frustrated (!) I decided to make another #1 Westminster. Quick and easy, lol!
#7 Avebury Stones. The little floral print I had just purchased was perfect for this hexie.
Nealy every year at the cabin this snapping turtle makes its way up the hill in our backyard to lay eggs. But we never see any evidence of its young. My daughter took this pic early one morning.
A beautiful sunset Memorial Day weekend.
I'll be back next Wed. for my regularly scheduled post. A computer virus caused some major problems this week!
