A Couple of Finishes

Finally the long awaited perle thread colour arrived in store and I was able to finish this quilt. I looked back through Flickr and it said that the top was finished in September and here we are in April. That's a long time ago!

It is amazing how such a simple block repeated can turn out such a bright and happy quilt.
The second finish has not taken so long to put  together.
It's Summer's blanket backed with light weight Echino fabric that I originally bought to turn into a scarf, but never did.
 We are hoping to meet her next week.
Also I'm still working on the giant hexies. I have sewn strips of all the fabric so I will just keep going until I run out of them.
It is school holiday time. I have not much planned except going to the quilt show.
Looking forward to having no plans!
I know these precious days will just slip through my fingers.

  4. I'm LOVING the hexis, but the tutorial is beyond my limited abilities.... I'll be quilting vicariously through you for a while, if that's ok with you?

  8. Melissa,
    It is inspiring to see so many finished projects. I am working on a quilt currently and so determined to quilt it right after it's done. Hope I can stay true to my own words.
    I love your hexagon spiderweb quilt. Have you finished it yet? And also would you mind if I added your name to the side bar on my blog?
