FRIDAY PHOTOS


This week only allowed part of one day for sewing, so I worked on my plus blocks. In an attempt to only use each fabric once, I have nearly gone through all my low volume fabrics for the background.
Time to stock up on some more.



I am aiming for one like this. I love it! 


The new Hexie pre-cuts from Moda are the perfect size for the 2 1/2" hexie paper templates. It's always nice to sit outside and baste these to my hearts content  : )


This little project is shaping up nicely.
Happy Friday

You always have such great ideas. I really like the plus blocks. Nice. I enjoy hexies while sitting outside, too. Such a great time of year to do it.
