Hexagon Hoopla!

Where did the weekend go? 
Monday is here....and all I have accomplished is adding a few more hexagons to a growing garden....


I am up to 11 blocks...only 19 more to go!


In the Fall I will be teaching a few technique classes...including English Paper Piecing....

  
I absolutely love piecing by hand and am so excited to be able to pull a few others on board...YAY!


My Sunday was spent shopping with my middle daughter, Maggie.
She didn't have much luck finding what she was looking for...but I was able to pick up a couple of things at Anthropologie....


Some yummy smelling soaps...


And another plate to add to my collection....
Happy Monday!

Just discovered your blog. I love your hexagons, the colours are so pretty and summery. Gorgeous!

Laura said...

I love your hexagons! I am working on hexagons right now too. Going to make a pillow. Then maybe do some Christmas hexagons.....I feel the same way about hand piecing. So relaxing.

The hex's are so pretty. I have never enjoyed paper piecing, so they scare me a little. But I do so admire them!

Michelle said...

Your hexies look fabulous... love the scrappy colours you've chosen...how big are you going to make it?

I want those flowers in my garden Mary - when they set seed can you send me some and I shall plant them with care! If only?? Looks like I might have to sign up to two hexie quilts and I haven't started one yet!

Patchwork and Play said...

Oh another pretty plate! Don't you love those blossom like flowers! If you think the weekend went quick, it's already Tuesday here! LOL!

Your blog makes me smile....and I am so excited that we will soon have an Anthropologie in OKC....now I am grinning really big : )

Anyone that sees your hexagon quilt will want to start one!! It's beautiful!! I'm in love with that plate, it's different, a bit strange and so pretty all at the same time. We don't have Anthropology in Australia but when I was in the States a few years ago I went to one and loved it!

Jodi said...

more gorgeousness, mary! And I love that plate, and Anthropologie!!!

notes of sincerity said...

Love love love your flowers!! What a gorgeous quilt that is becoming!!
And super cute plate! :o)
I was curious if you have ever hand quilted with size 10 crochet thread??
Hoping your week has been a great one this far. :o)
love, Trish

I've only made a few hexagons, just to teach myself, but seeing your beautiful blocks(?) has inspired me to do more of them, but with a purpose!

I want to be you.

Angela {fussycut} said...

holy crap, ditto the previous comment! Those hexies amazing.

Janet said...

Your blocks look awesome! I adore the plate, if I saw it I'd have bought it too.
