Honeycomb Quilt

Image

I thought I would give the Honeycomb precuts a try.  Having never worked with hexagons, I found the moda bake shop YouTube video and 1 PDF  instructions very helpful.  It’s coming along nicely and I am very greatful for my sewing machines…tie offMon feature which helps secure all these hex points.  The finished product will be wall hanging size.  I thought I would use over size running stitches in contrasting DMC floss and vintage buttons in each hex for the quilting size of it.

Wallet

I found this pattern online and needed a small project for tonight. I had some really great material with scanned barcode images that lends itself to shopping and money. The holder was meant for a small pad of paper but who writes stuff down anymore! I have been using ‘notes’ in the cloud.

Here are pics of the inside and out. I travel lite with very few cards – can’t be bothered with locality programs.

SawTooth Star Quilt

The fabric was purchased near the Teddy Roosevelt National Park.   That day a herd of buffalo wandered thru our campsite at Cottonwood.  So when I went to the local town’s quilt shop and spotted this buffalo batik, I new it was a sign.  Didn’t use the material for a long time and finally cut into it.  I used a basic star block.  Added 2 inch sashing and spent the extra time  hand quilting this because it is very small.  IMG_1792

A Special Day

I made this quilt for my father on his 83rd birthday. Shortly after he passed away. It has been 5 years past and so much of who I am is because of Jacobus Wilhelmus. Thx Dad.
