Hope that you had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed some lovely weather! It cooled down and even rained over the weekend, which was a nice break from the heat. Thank you all for your sweet and supportive comments on my new items!! You made my day brighter!
Well, this weekend was quite productive with some quilty goodness!! I finished another barn block, and I'm really lovin' this one!
I used some of my favorite fabrics and colors together and love how they all compliment each other so sweetly!
Only one more barn block to go and then I will be ready to finish my mini Barn Block quilt!
My hexie flowers are coming along and this one reminds me of the pretty springtime!
As I was choosing the fabrics for the next flowers, I thought I would look at a book I have called Warman's Vintage Quilts to look at the vintage Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts to see how the flowers were placed.
And, came to realize that I am going to have to make a lot more flowers to make a lap size quilt because they are not really in straight rows. These two above are doll quilts, and the ones below are larger sized quilts, and there are so many flowers! So, I am definitely in this project for the long haul! At least I love making them!
I was thinking that I should start adding the white hexies to the ones I have to see how it is going to start forming and how many I'm really going to need. ;)
So, the next fabrics are cut and ready to be made into a pretty flower! This quilt will definitely be a labor of love, but I know it will be so worth it in the end!
And, because I am a girl of many projects, I started making some sweet sixteen-patch quilt blocks yesterday that were inspired by the beautiful quilt made by the most lovely and talented Hen of HenHouse! And, she is as sweet as can be to show you how she made her blocks here, which is super simple and they really become quite addicting! Thank you sweetest Hen for being such an inspiration!
I am already looking forward to making some more and the best part is picking out the fabrics. And, it really is a great way to use those fabrics that have been waiting patiently to be used again. What projects are you working on this week?
Wishing you all a lovely and crafty week!
