A Few More Hexy's & My Lovely Saturday...


Slowly, slowly, slowly... a few more hexy's for my tub...
Hexagons are such a simple shape... so easy to do... & I'm smiling on the inside because in a couple of months I'm going to start stitching them together into blocks... yay!
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

I had the loveliest day on Saturday!
In April when we were on Retreat, one of the ladies showed us two gorgeous quilts she'd made, using a block she called Indian Hatchet. It was great of her to agree to come & show us a bit more about how to piece it & lay it out as a quilt.
I got all my fabrics pressed, cut & marked in preparation for the day... so all I had to do was learn how to sew the block, then get Pfaff-ing on it! Woo hoo.

I'd been wanting to do a black & whites with greys type of thing for ages... so this was my chance... what do you think?! This is my progress so far... just sewing the blocks then laying them out to appreciate them... tossing in a pop of pink here & there... I'm loving it so far!
This is my work space for the day... hhmmm, I seem to be taking up a lot of room there!
 
There was only a small number of us sewing, which was a shame considering how many members we have, BUT our little gathering was so very enjoyable & rejuvenating.

This is going to be yet another great project to just potter with... sew a few blocks now & then... something easy that will give me a happy result... fabulous!

Thanks for popping by & I hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday♥

Very nice! I love the colors you're using, including the occasional pop of pink. Do you have a nice big design wall in your new sewing room?

Hello Anthea,

I love that pop of pink in your new quilt design. How big are you planning to make it?

Happy Hexing.
Bev.

Love your blocks and the colours you are using. Nice to have a learning day now and then isn't it! Hexies look wonderful.

Blacks greys and whites look so good together. Yors is coming together nicely.

Your hexies are going to be lovely - I would have been too impatient to start by now and would have been stitching them together without having them all basted!! The quilt you worked on at your sewing day is stunning, lovely use of colours.
