Thanks to Mdm Sam of Sew We Quilt and Debby of Debby Kratovil Quilts!

and Connecting Threads as are sponsor.

I was and still am excited about this hop. I loooove hexies! I can’t wait to see everyone’s projects. Unfortunately for me I didn’t get finished. So today I’m not the Hexie Queen. lol On top of remodeling our house, I took on a summer job. Our homeschool just started last week too. (*deep breath*) 🙂

So, getting on with project, I bought some hexie templates with the idea of machine sewing them. It worked out pretty good for the most part I just need more time to finish. Not enough time in a day.

So here is what I bought

Hexie Templates

and here is as far as I got.

Hexie Lap Quilt

I used fabric from my stash. I started out thinking I was going to make a bed runner. My reasoning for that was I had comforter that stayed folded at the end of my bed for like.. 7 yrs. (it did come off to get washed, lol) No kidding, I made the bed with it maybe 5 times. I really didn’t like the comforter. So while purging and donating items, I just threw the comforter in the donate box. Then I thought “I just make a bed runner to lay on the bed”, but my husband wouldn’t like the girly colors. So I changed my mind and now here I am, a lap quilt.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I really appreciate all the lovely comments and encouragement. You are really wonderful. Your comments are the best part of these hops.

Here is today’s hop schedule and have a wonderful time hopping.

  1. Even if it is not finished it is great!! I love the colors!! Just keep plugging along. This is not a race and yes it sounds like you have a lot to do. I have to remind myself to just keep breathing sometimes too. Hang in there!!

  2. Very nice! Don’t worry about not completing it on time – life happens and occasionally takes precedence over sewing :(. Keep up the good work! I love the colors.

  4. Your are going to have a very special lap quilt. I am sure the lure of completing it will be strong once life slows down.

  5. With all the distractions that you have it is a wonder that the hexies got to this point! There are never enough hours in the day to all that we would like to do and I say that as a retired person! This is lovely no matter what it is going to be called in the end!

  6. I just love it!! It will look great at the foot of your bed. Sounds like you are a busy girl. Don’t forget to take some time for yourself every few days…a long hot bath; a quiet, reflective walk…

  7. You are a hexie princess, then. =) Every hotel I stayed on a recent trip had bed runners instead of entire bedspreads. It was a new concept to me!

  8. Your lap quilt is pretty. Some men are bothered by girly colors and others are not – we all have our individual preferences. You have had a busy summer, year and you were still able to get this much accomplished – WOW! Thanks for participating and the great inspiration.

  10. It’s looking great! I have a couple of projects that are long-term (my orange peel quilt is over 2 years, now!). I like them BECAUSE they are long-term. 🙂 No stress. No worry. Will finish when I finish. We all need some of that in our lives, eh?
