More Half Inch Hexies

Who knew when I started this hexie journey a little over a year ago that I would be basting a whole bunch of 1/2" pink tana lawn hexies.  I still had cut off's from my 1" die cutting adventure.  Had to use every last little scrap.  Here are about 200 of them.  I still have about 100 to go.  Good way to occupy my 15 minute breaks at work. I do not have a plan for them at this moment but was thinking more in the pincushion/mug rug direction rather than a whole quilt.

I did get my "Gemini" Villa Rosa together.  I used some 2.5" strips I got a couple of years ago on ebay.  They look like they might be Red Rooster fabric.  My oldest was here from Baltimore about a month ago and saw these blocks on the design wall.  He decided the quilt would look great on his family room couch.  Who was I to argue.  

I got my April block done for Jan.  She wanted Shabby Chic.  This was about all I had that screamed Shabby Chic.  I love all the bouquets of roses. I hope she likes green.

I went to an open house at the Quilt Haus a little south of Austin in New Braunfels.  They are starting a new modern quilt guild.  Since I am moving in two weeks just south of Austin it seemed like a good fit.  Hopefully they will get it started up soon.  My husband got a promotion but the job is in San Antonio which is about 1.5 hours south of Austin.  I still work in Austin.  We are moving somewhere almost in the middle until I can find a good job in San Antonio.  I have the sewing room almost packed except for the fixings for some block swap blocks.  I have been trying to do a little at a time.  Not looking forward to the move.

  6. I just love those shapes in your green block. Lovely! I'm also a big fan of Liberty - it's so great for small EPP as it is so fine. This will be a real heirloom.
