Finish Up Friday —- Grow Your Blog Party.

Well, I was so excited about sewing the hexagons earlier that I didn’t notice that I stitched the rows wrong until after they were pieced.  So I’ve been putting off cutting out more hexagons. Ahhh!! Plus I dImageidn’t have quite enough fabric left.  Well I took all the hexagons with the precut foundation templates fused and turned, apart, Ironed and recut.  I have just enough to  remake my block.  Yeah!   Plus since this was such tedious job, I watched a few episodes of the Quilt Show on line.   That made it quite a fun day.

Valentine’s Day!  Have not done a thing.  Not even a card.  My husband is going to the ballgames tonight to watch some of his students play.  I am going to quilt and finish up the veggie soup.  Tomorrow we might go out to eat.

Grow Your Blog Party !!!!!  I will be drawing late this evening and posting the winner of my Nifty Fifty give-a-way.

I will also finish hand sewing the binding on my mug rugs for the Quilting Gallery Mug Rug swap.  My daughter likes them so much I have to make a second set fro her.  I won’t post until my exchange partner gets them.

Above you can see the size of the 2″ dolls compared to my keyboard. I’ve been slowly satin stitching the Matryoshka dolls.  Now I really wish I had done the blanket stitch on them.  I am debating on whether or not this would be okay.  I was thinking as long as the dolls in each square were appliquéd the same it would not matter.   Any opinions?E blockresized

  2. I love these! I like them the way you have done them rather than with a blanket stitch. So little and perfect. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished quilt. btw, I found your blog while visiting the GYB hop. I am on blogger so I’m not sure how to follow you, but am adding you to my blog roll so I can see when you have a new post.
