I have admit this is the first modern quilt I’ve ever made. I did do things a little different. I didn’t sew blocks together but instead I cut out one complete piece of fabric to the size wanted. It ended up being 64″ long and whatever the bolt width was. I drew out the squares (with a ruler of course) to the size of 7 1/2″ then I cut out the centers. I used starch and press to turn the edges under. Then I resized the center squares to 3 1/2″ and turned the edges under as well. I tried out different arrangements on the background till I liked what I had. Continue reading “Wake Up to Kona……My Day”

I’ve done a small portion since that last sew in but I didn’t get very far last night because a bad thing happen. When I sat down to sew I noticed that somehow I ended up using two shades of white. I must have rapped both on the same card. Now I have to take out the wrong white and redo with the correct one. Grrrr……don’t ya just hate that! lol

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*) 🙂
As usual, I got a late start but did get some sewing done. I choose to work on my cross stitch project. It’s been a while since I’ve worked on this stitchery. Last night I thought I’d pull it out and work some more.
