Hexies WIP and Good News

Hi Everyone......

Last week was our 32nd anniversary.  32 years is a long time for anything, but it doesn't feel long for being married to my wonderful husband.  I guess time flies when you have fun.  He makes me laugh every day.  I'm so blessed to have someone who supports me in all that I do.  He's always there for me in all ups and downs.

On top of that, I also got great news about my QuiltCon entries.  Two of four quilts got accepted.  Here is a glimpse of them.  You've seen the one on the right before.  It's the quilt called 'Journey'.  The one on the left is called 'Autumn 21', I will have to show it to you at a later time.

I'm so thrilled to be included among super talented quilters.  Check out so many great quilts on Instagram #QuiltCon2021.

In my last post, I said my OMG for December was to do something with all the EPP Hexies that I have.  I've made some progress as seen below.


I made the top four coasters first and tried different ideas for quilting.  It turned out I didn't like them as much.  I felt there's too much quilting on them.  So I made the next four coasters and left out the quilting on the white background.  I only quilt around the hexie shape.  I like it much better.  So I made more.....


5" Coasters

The fun continues with this 7" square hot pad.  


I also tried some other layouts on 8" square as in the picture below.  The more I look at them, I probably make the background a little bigger. 

Have a great quilty day!!
