Last Sunday I made 3 pillowcase dresses for little girls in Colombia. Read about Lori's February trip at HumbleQuilts.com. I purchased these pillowcases at the thrift shop for 50-cents each. I just love the way they turned out. They make me smile!
I started prepping the next "odd" hexie block. It's in black and white because the colors were really, really off. I think I need a new battery for my camera. Anyway, I fussy cut 1-1/8" strips, attached them in spiral fashion, and trimmed the extra fabric.
I turned under the edges 1/4" and appliqued the hexie to the background square. I now have 2 done. Oh, btw, my initials are in the fabric 'B D S'. This hexie was a reject when I was putting together my Morris hexie quilt. It was too big.
Our first guild meeting of the year was held Monday night. The Sunshine Committee put a small packet on each chair asking everyone to make a 9-1/2" unfinished block that will eventually be sewn into a charity quilt. The blocks are due at the February meeting. It's a great way to get everyone involved!
