Another one finished! This one is made with a cutting template I bought from Missouri Star Quilt Company several years ago. We used it to make the "Won't You Be My Neighbor Quilt". The template is used to make the roofs for the houses and you can get two of those out of a ten inch square. So, a pretty good sized finished hexagon. And we all know that it's way easier to sew rows of half hexies together than it is to do that dreaded "Y" seam!
I used an orange inner border and a Brandon Mably fabric for the outer border. I like this one! It just says FUN! to me.
The backing is two different black prints that came from my sister in law Gloria's last bunch of fabrics. The binding is a solid purple.
Here it is in its crinkly, freshly washed and dried photo - always my favorite shot!
Out in the back yard, there is still plenty of pretty to see. We had a nice rain yesterday afternoon, which we really needed. I've been doing a lot of watering out there, so I was glad for the rain.
This ominous looking sky appeared this morning and I thought for sure we would get more rain. Alas, we did not.
The good news is: Blue Bell has cranked out some strawberry ice cream! Mr. Muddling and I made sure to pick up some this week at the grocery. Life is good!
I have several more projects in the works. We'll see how long it takes to get them done. Always more ideas than time for me.. Is that so for you as well? I am really thankful for an air conditioned house and plenty of fabric and sewing machines! Because I'm staying inside!
Hugs and kisses,
