It's a Finish! Plus WW6 and Hexies

After a year of procrastinating thinking I was going to machine quilt Summer Scraps I decided to have someone else do it for me. 

Barbie Vanderfleet-Martin did a beautiful job with a subtle quilting design which blends right in. It's 46" x 46." 

I made the top last year when I was determined to empty my scrap bins. All those 1" squares were individually cut and sewed together. 

I didn't have to buy any fabrics for the back as I already had these on my shelf. 

  It's finished

I always look forward to making the next Westering Women block. This is #6. Hill and Hollow. 

Blocks 1-6 :)

I added two more rows to my tumbler quilt. I envision it to be square with a plain 6" cable-quilted border

I'm either piecing the Morris Hexies by hand or machine. This is #8. Greenwood.

#9. Red Lion

#10. Thames Path

#10. Thames Path rotated. 

 #11. Merton Mill 

Here they are. I've cut the next round of bird and flower prints and sketched out a plan for the corners. But first I need to make room on my design wall for all the pieces and that means moving EVERYTHING down, lol!

Happy Summer Quilting!

  1. Your scrappy 16 patch caught my eye. I like it very much.

  2. Barbara, I love your Summer Scraps postage stamp quilt! (Well.. I love just about everything you do). Initially I wasn't wild about your choice of the marbley fabric for the side triangles, but now I see that it works perfrctly to set off the blocks. Excellent!

  3. What a great finsh with all those wondeful 1" squares. Sometimes you just have to pass it on to a machine quilter so you can enjoy it sooner. The tumblers are adding up and all those Morris hexies are incredible.

  4. Ooh you've done an incredible job ! I love your quilt and your friend did a wonderful quilting !
    Your hexies are so cute ! I love the floral fabric between them !

  5. What an awesome post! Your scrappy summer scraps is wonderful! the setting fabrics are inspired. The back is great too.
    Your hexies look great as does the WW block and your tumblers.
    So many good things going!
