Yesterday, I worked on the dolls and now they have hair:
After that, I created my very first Hexie! It took a lot longer than I expected, but that’s ok; I was enjoying chatting with my friends. It’s the first time I’ve used the Quilt Patis from Sew Sisters, and I really, really LOVE them! I’m going to have to get some in a larger size, too.
The picture isn’t very clear, but you get the idea. . .
I was planning to use these for trim on a dress, but I’m still too slow making them, so for now they will be accent features. This one, though, will go into my stash box for a future sampler quilt. I have a book from the library called “The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt“. The letters are very nostalgic for me and the quilt blocks inspiring. More later . . .
