Tiny Hexies and Squares
As I mentioned last week I’m working on downsizing my unfinished project pile(s). It’s been a little tricky with it being summer and having the kids home. We’ve been out doing things together, which is fun and fabulous, but means the late hours of the night are morphing into my crafting time again. If I could choose a superpower, it would be to have more time or two of me so I could do it all.
The first project I finished was this English paper pieced hexi flower dish towel using Bonnie and Camille fabrics. Quick and easy.
Next project I made this week is this 4th of July flag wreath. It was a girl’s night project that I got together with my mother and sister-in-laws for. One of them had found the idea on Pinterest. Crafting with family is one of my all-time favorite things to do.
I also finished this patchwork strawberry pillow I started forever ago. The strawberry is from Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage book.
I forgot to share this one last week. My nine-year-old wanted to get some friendship necklaces to give to some of her friends on the last day of school. We decided instead to make them something more unique and used some elastic and buttons to make them matching bracelets. Thankfully, they went over well.
Lastly, I’m sharing the quilt I made for my son, William. I’m incredibly slow at binding — an itty bitty hand tacking perfectionist. We sent them out for the quilting. I love the crinkly quilted look.
He’s a very sentimental boy. He’s thanked me for my hard work and for making it over and over again. Makes this mama’s heart full.
Here’s more of a closeup. It fits his twin size bed.
Hopefully I can accomplish more next week. See you then!
