I have been working on my Kingfisher hexagon quilt. I have all the hexagon flowers hand appliquéd to the diamonds and all the setting triangles cut. I'm hoping to get this center section sewn together in the next couple of days. After that, two borders will be added--one of those having some appliquéd triangles added as embellishment.
Here are some "progress" pics. The first one is an example of "fussy cutting." I took the second picture of some hexies with my day lilies. The third is a pic of what it looked like when I was working on most of the appliqué--on the road. Thanks for driving Nate!
I have also been working on my "forever" hexagon project. I finished hand appliquéing the entire quilt to the ombre background just last night.
Libby makes it a challenge to work on it some days. There isn't room for her AND the quilt in my lap.
I had a chance to visit the Form Not Function exhibit at the Carnegie in New Albany, IN, before it closed. This is always a fantastic show--one I don't miss if I can help it. I didn't have anything ready to even TRY to get in this year, but one of my friends got in. I want to share her pic with you. This is my friend, Vickie Wheatley, with her piece called Anxieties #1: Imperfections. Congrats Vickie!
Here she is with her new unicorn backpack, lunchbox, and pencil pouch. She'll be going to kindergarten and MUST have the most fashionable accessories for those that have just turned five. LOL!
