The Hexagon Project

My "little" project that I started a few years ago....

Start with a few thousand hexagons (only 550 shown in color)

Sew them together in diamonds...

Make 39 diamonds....

And start sewing them all together with a few thousand cream hexagons to make a quilt.

Not sure what I was thinking when I decided to embark on this journey??!  Maybe should have done a little table topper.

Felt a little card creative today....

Got the bug this afternoon to make a few birthday cards.

Feather Sampler

The sampler is about 40" square...was done with a layer of cotton batting and a layer of wool.  I used a polyester thread from Superior threads called Nature colors on the top and on the bottom I used Isacord thread.  I'm teaching this class at Central Sewing in Edmonton on Feb.23 from 9-noon.

Lucy couldn't resist a photo opp :)
