I haven't been up to a whole lot lately, with summer upon us and now a vacation behind us but I do have a little bit to share.
The hexies that I prepared to work on while on vacation have now been completed - ended up being 120 - 1" hexagons, which is only enough to piece together into something about placemat size! I don't know what my actual intentions are for this project, I really can't see myself doing a whole quilt, but for now it's going into the "ongoing projects" category.
My jumbo granny square blocks are coming along as well, all 3 of them have all setting triangles added since last time I posted. Sashing still needs to be added between the blocks and then I need to decide on some wide border colours. Incidentally, it was so windy when I was trying to take a clothesline photo this afternoon and I had to wait quite a while for things to calm down, in the mean time with all the blowing, the edges of the blocks actually frayed a bit. Ooooops!
Lastly for today, I was one of the fortunate winners of Chelsea's giveaway and she will be long-arm quilting this quilt top for me:
I still need to make arrangements with her about delivering the top/backing/batting to her, as well as how we decide to quilt it, but I am SO excited! I've never had a quilt long-armed before. I'm really looking forward to showing the results sometime in the not too distant future.
