I feel like I've been on a 2-week sewing vacation while watching the Olympics. I've accomplished so much :)
I finished the hexie top which I started in Barb V's workshop last October :) One of my favorite fabrics is the baseball player on the right. It looks just like my great grandfather, Frank Hankinson.
Great similarity, don't you think?
I put many of my favorite fabrics in this quilt. Rachel made the blue star with little dogs along the outer edges. How cute!
I've been making Morris hexies on a weekly basis. I chose the alternate version of #12 Hampton Court because it had fewer pieces and a large center to showcase a favorite bird.
My first try at #13 Oxford Rose but I wasn't thrilled with the way those swirls came together in the center.
So I made another with completely different fabrics.
#14 Canterbury was fun to make because the fabrics worked really well together.
#15 Kelmscott Tile is another alternate block with fewer pieces and larger diamonds. In the past I've had a hard time finding a use for that feathery Hoffman fabric but it finally seemed a good fit as the outer diamonds.
And here is #7 Courthouse Rock in the Westering Women series. These pretty coordinating fabrics are from Barbara B's Alice's Scrapbag by Moda.
Have a great week everyone!
