Stacks O' Progress

Hello Everyone,

Well I have been busy at my sewing machine and also some hand stitching. In between all of that I have been busy with customer quilts too. New ones were added to my gallery check them out!

But I wanted to share the progress I have made on my Judy Niemeyer quilt, A Touch of Spring first. During the day, I tend to use my sewing machine more than hand stitching. I reserve the hand stitching for night, so that I can be with my family. How about you???

Here is what I accomplished so far... Lots more arcs only four more to go!!

Another view to show some detail.


Those perfect points, they are pretty much guaranteed with paper piecing!!



Now onto the night time work... I have been having a blast with my hexies!! I am soooo addicted. Right now I have eleven completed flowers for my grandmother's flower garden. I know I have a ton more to do, as this is going to be for our guest bedroom, it is a double bed! Don't you just love this pretty little stack?


All fanned out for a better view...


This last picture is of 1/2 of a full flower complete! This will be done tonight, no bones about it!


I am just loving my current projects, but I know that I have a ton of UFO's to complete as well. Don't forget to sign up for my monthly newsletter. Click on the widget on my sidebar to do so. My current newsletter is available online here. The next one will be on its way next week.

Well, I must get back to work now! I just love what I do! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Until Next Time....

Your Judy N. pieces are coming along nicely. The reds are beautiful. And isn't making a GFG relaxing? It's the first quilt I made and it spurred me on to the world of quilting.

Stephanie said...

Lovely stacks of pretties. Your arcs and points are perfection and the colors are yummy.

Your Judy quilt is looking awesome. I used one of the same batik's in my Bella quilt with the rest in completely different colors. Interesting to see how it works with different colors. Hexies are multiplying!

Anina said...

You are so very, very productive! I wish my little hexagons would multiply like yours.

Anya said...

Love your hexagons...I made a small wallhanging a few years ago using them. I agree -- they are addicting...thanks for sharing the photos.

I'm in MAJOR hexagon mode right now, but those curves took my breath away. Gorgeous.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Well, we love what you do too!! I love to hand quilt at night also! I love your projects, and the points are perfect not because of the paper but because of you!! Love your hexes!!

I am so excited to see your hexagon flowers.. perfect fabrics, and it will be so beautiful on the guest bed. Can I come and sleep under it? :-D Funny!

henny said...

Sounds you're really busy!! have a great quilting time.. :)
All the archs are beautiful.
I wish I was the first guest at your home to feel the beauty of awesome hexagon flowers quilt, LOL!!

Janet said...

My goodness, I'm oohing and aahing here,if I didn't have my current hand projects I'd be tempted by the hexes, they look delicious. Your paper pieced project is amazing to look at too, I'm a big fan of paper piecing.

Carla said...

Those arcs are so pretty. Love the hexagons.

Janet said...

I'm not a lover of paper piecing but those perfect points are a real turn on. You are moving right along with the hexagons. It took me 2 years to finish my Grandmother's Garden, piecing and quilting. Love your choice of prints. I too like to do handwork in the evenings.

Annette said...

Love, love, love your hexies! Such pretty fabrics. They are going to make a gorgeous quilt and lucky are your guests who get to sleep under it.

Rumi said...

Can't wait to see the finished products! So lovely even now!

alobsiger said...

Those are gonna be two great quilts! Your rich batiks are really, really wonderful! Those nice crispy points. Ahh...

Karen said...

Ohh I love your arcs, it's going to be a stunner I'm sure.

Dawn said...

Your -touch of spring- arcs are so rich and fabulous looking!

And your hexies are so beautiful! Wow. Seeing others working so hard on their gorgeous, gorgeous blocks is such a shot of inspiration. Your pile is so colorful and terrific!

Teresa said...

Oh my...I want to see the big picture of what you are doing with those arcs.

imquilternity said...

I so love your choice of fabrics for the JN quilt. Wow...it's going to be really stunning! Interesting how you can go from JN to hexagons...in the same post. Such a different mindset!

hetty said...

Your Touch of Spring quilt is looking very interesting. Paper piecing certainly does allow you to make nice points. Can't wait to see this put together. The hexagons are very nice too. I also use my sewing machine during the day and save the hand sewing for the evenings so that I can be with my family and also have something to do if I am watching television.

julieQ said...

I have a English paper pieced Hex project going too...many years in the making! Both your projects are really great.

Wendy said...

You've been busy. Your projects are looking great! I do save my hand stitching for in front of the TV to be with my family.

Arlette said...

Both projects are gorgeous. I especially love the fabrics that you've chosen for your hexies. The flowers are so pretty it makes my heart skip a beat!
Aloha!

Mary Beth said...

Hand-sewing is addictive!!!! I just love your work! Paper piecing is the way to go too. I love the precision. I don't mind removing the paper even from a queen sized quilt if it is gonna mean such perfect points!

mellyandrosie said...

Can I pleeeeeeeeeease come and stay in your guest room and lay under this quilt???!!!! Heavenly hexagons! I have been saying for 12 months that I want to start one and your post encourages me further!!!! I want one!!

Jen said...

I know, the hexes are so addicting! I need to get my hex project box out and get some more done myself.
