Committed At Last!

Yay!  I made a decision...always takes a while for me to figure out direction I want to go in.  The hexies are going on strips, keeping this a very portable project for Sewing On the Go.  Which reminds me...Jessica's book signing program was a huge success!  I was so glad to see so many of us catching her spirit.  I love her easy basting method and am converted forever now.  I am not joining my hexies,  however, but rather appliqueing them individually.  Thought my blues were just to dark together and needed a lot of white to set them off.  So I'm off and running here...


  1. Yay! I love your original idea for these.

  2. These look so pretty against the starkness of the white...a great idea for sure...I am looking forward to seeing this project progress...

  3. It was nice to see you at the Jesssica's book signing. I love the design for your hexies.

  4. Beautiful. Great way to keep the project portable and endless possibilities for assembly.

  5. What a great idea! Can't wait to see how this quilt turns out!

  6. These are going to keep you busy for a while - love them!

  7. Oh you've made great progress.
    Will every strip be white or will you alternate colors?
    Like a punch of bright yellow in there?

    Nicely done! The strip looks quite long...what does it measure?

    Happy Sewing

    1. I will be using up all my white on whites, which vary slightly in tone, for the strips. Not sure how long they will be, but the first one goes from my head to toe...another nap quilt for my collection.

  8. Gorgeous! This looks beautiful already. It's always great to reach "milestones" like this - starting off the foundation for the layout. Nice work!

  9. What a lovely idea! This looks beautiful already!
