Progress... Finally!

On Tuesday I bought the background fabric for my Quilt Of Forgotten Fabrics (QOFF)...
I cut it to 7inch squares, and this afternoon I have been sewing away happily, using machine applique to stitch a flower on each square. 
 The plan is to stitch 6 rows of 6 blocks, & if I think it needs something extra like a border, to make it a better size, I will decide on it then. It's to become some sort of throw for the sofa. There will also be a single hexagon at each block corner. I'm sticking to the Think-& Plan-As-I-Go method here!
Site Manager working hard, or is that hardly working?!
Don't forget tomorrow night is Friday Night Sew-In... signups HERE

I think you'll be surprised how good the forgotten fabrics look together when you're finished.

I can visualise how you are putting it together and it will look wonderful. Love the site manager. I will have two supervisors today as the cat is being really clingy already and it isnt even 6am yet!

they look lovely on their background fabrics. I am debating whether to put my novelty fabric hexies together on plain backgrounds with sashings. I don't want to make heaps of stepping stone hexies to put them together. so will watch your progress keenly to see how they come together. I like your think, plan as you go method!

I love your hexagon block, I look forward to seeing how this one turns out!

Looking good!

That is a brilliant idea Anthea. I have made flowers from my scraps to make the Vignette hexie quilt but they make me shudder to think of them side by side. White blocks like that would make a whole lot of difference & might mean I have enough made. I ay have to borrow your idea! Tracee xx
