What's a girl to do . . .

I used to be so good at sticking to one project - but let me just tell you, that has gone right out the window.

I decided to join up in the Hexagon Quilt-a-Long, and man, am I ever excited! But, there is a small snag. Apparently, the mail man does not want me to start. He is holding my fabric hostage. Somewhere. But not at my post office.

So, intead of just waiting patiently, I did this:

coin quilt

I just cut up a whole bunch of coins. I am just going to do a quick little coin quilt. A really nice mom of one of the boys on my son's hockey team is having a baby. What a great, easy, fun project to keep a new baby warm.

I am also in the middle of this:
kate conklin; there is a square in there

This pattern is called "there's a square in there", by Kate Conklin. Very easy! But also not done.

I am in the middle of quilting it right now ...

I decided to do straight line quilting on this one. It is really hard to keep those lines perfectly straight!! It's a little wonky = Here is a close up:

And here is one a little farther back:

half finished straight line

I used the Riley Blake line, which I think may be called "all stars" for both these quilts.

While I anxiously stalk the post office, I will be working on these. I will show you more soon!!

  1. Not sure if you'll see this comment, but I love your "There's a square in there" quilt. I'll have to try it in some darker colours too.
