WIP Wednesday [Summer Hexagons]

I'm spending the week with my parents, which means no sewing machine.... and that means I can get some hand sewing done! So far this week I've been basting hexagons.... nothing as satisfying as a row of neatly basted hexies.

And this evening I started piecing them into flowers

This will form part of the mini quilts I'm making for the Fat Quarterly Retreat sample swap.

I've also been plotting some embroidery - some to go with the hexagons, the next few months of my own BOM, the name tag for my partner at the Fat Quarterly Retreat, and some quilt labels. So the next few days may see some embroidery too.

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday and heading over to check out some of the other eye candy! WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I enjoyed the hexies!

Lovely hexie project!

The hexies look so pretty all lined up in the box. They'll look even better all sewn up. Nice.

Hi Jennie, thank you so much for visiting my blog! It's great to meet another quilter in the UK, even if you are at the other end of the country!!! (I think there might be some mutual understanding of me whinging on about the price of fabric and the rotten summer weather, haha!!!)

I love your hexies, they're such great colours - nothing like bringing a bit of colour to a grey old day ;) I'm going to add you to my bloglovin' feed and hope we can chat again soon!
