It must be summer because I've pulled out the hand-stitching. For me, cold weather is all about quilting by hand or knitting. In summer, English Paper Piecing rules. It's portable- perfect for mornings at the park and afternoons doing workbooks at the kitchen table. Most importantly, it doesn't involve a lap full of sweaty yarn or yards of fabric.
I'm back to working on my hexie flowers quilt. I've been calling my Grandfather's Flower Garden quilt. I've got 37 flowers attached into a big blob and another 16 ready to attach. I'm just not sure how to go about turning this blob into a rectangle. Maybe I'll get brave and try and throw a corner on there this week. Maybe not.
There's no real plan on this one. I'll just keep adding flowers until I think it's big enough. Or another project entices me away.
My helpers were not to excited about going outside to take quilt pictures in the middle of the afternoon. Good thing they're still adorable when whiny and can be bribed with candy.
