Ten days till Handsome Hubby leaves country and 8 projects away from 200! Will I reach 200 before he gets home? If I didn’t have anything else to do but projects, I could definitely do it, but with everything that I need to do, I’m not sure if I will make it! This homeschooling is kicking my patootie!! I guess as kids get older, their schoolwork gets more difficult! Go figure!
Here is a project that I was working on two weeks ago. I couldn’t post it right away because I didn’t want to ruin the surprise!!
Our good friends Chad and Elizabeth are expecting their first baby in October. We were all stationed in California together. They are still there, and of course, we are on the other side of the country. So, when I heard that our friends in California were throwing her a baby shower, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
This quilt is made using the techniques found in the book: One Block Wonders
Basically it is a lot of fussy cutting of one fabric into tons of triangles…
And then putting those together for form hexagons…
Then putting all those hexagons together to make the quilt!
These are my favorite quilts to make because you really only have to choose one fabric. All your blocks are made out of the same fabric. See the pink paisley fabric below? That is what all the hexagons are made from. The green fabric is the backing and the polk-a-dot fabric is what I used for the binding. Another plus about these quilts is that they look really involved and detailed, but they are really easy to make!! I made this quilt in two afternoons!
Congratulations Chad and Elizabeth! We can’t wait to meet your little one - - I know you guys are going to be awesome parents!!!
