Big and Little

Quite a while ago I set myself a goal to see how far I could go in stitching hexagons. So far I have made 17 pretty hexagon flowers and have several more cut and ready to go.   Now I don’t know when I will stop!

I also stitched up these tiny 1/2 inch hexies and turned them into a little 13 inch quilt…all finished.

I love making hexie flowers!

I was also working on a dresden quilt.  I have the blocks all done and am deciding how to design them into a quilt….sashing and all…you know.

While I’m thinking through that, I took time to sew some sweet 3 inch dresdens for these little projects:

My inspiration came from Virginia, of Galloping Pony.  I love her designs.  She has such a beautiful talent.

She's not the only one with beautiful talent - these are all lovely! I was hooked on hexagons for a while, but got distracted - I need to revisit them. I've only made one Dresden Plate quilt, but it was one of my favorites, so I'll definitely be making another someday.
