Studio fairies

A few weeks ago, I posted a request for the Studio Fairies to visit me. Since then we have had a few wish bones. And sadness, no bones for me. I broke the bigger side & my wish didn't come true. Poo.

On the hexie front, it is time to start piecing the complex flowers. Background flowers are complete.

The basics of the quilt: finished size to be almost 4 foot by 7 foot, made of 3/4 inch hexagons, total number of hexies 2695 (making 385 flowers) 

Steps for the gargoyle:
Step 1: cut grey and black fabric squares.
Step 2: pin pieces to the not quite full size color guide.
Step 3: piece together flowers.
Step 4: piece lowers together.
Step 5: baste
Step 6: quilt
Step 7: bind

Hexy world

Woo Hoo not a post about a giveaway. It appears that is all I have been doing. Quiltland has not been productive for me as of late. The studio is a mess, *wishing for a fairy to come sort, fold & put away the stash. It has been there since we moved.

As I was looking thru this weeks blogs, I found this super cool set of hexies by Pings and needles. Very inspiring. Hopefully after the jewelry stuff has been posted on eBay I can get to the sewing machine & have some fun.

And the generosity continues

Good Morning Blogland,
