I've finally made a start on my hexagon quilt. I'm using 1" hexagons in black and white, bordered with a yellow/mustardy colour.

I put a few together to see what they would look like. The colour in the picture isn't quite right but you get the drift.

This is my hand sewing project while I watch TV at night with the boss. Football season has started and I need something to keep me sane. It's still a little too warm to knit.

Spring - Four Seasons

This first picture is the start of my 'Spring' Four Seasons Quilt, I've spent a long time making up my mind about what to do this time. I have Iris bulbs outside my laundry window and also near the letter box that bloom every year. I don't know who planted them, I've lived here for nearly 25 years and they have bloomed every year.
After completing the applique I wanted to frame the flower and tried various ideas with pencil sketches.....drawing is not one of my talents.

Finally decided on log cabin blocks in a variety of purples. If I don't have visitors tomorrow I hope to get the quilting done.

I was going to add a few more pictures of my current projects but I'm having trouble uploading them, maybe it will be better in the morning.
