It's probably no big mystery what's on my design wall this week . . .
Thankfully, between a meeting at church that Todd needed to stay for (and so, consequently, did I) and the guild transition and board meeting, I got *all* of my fabric pieces tacked to their corresponding paper pieces . . .
. . . and I got two full twisted hexies whipped together! These are going together so smoothly and I just continue to adore the way the fabrics play so nicely together! My next step is to see if I can find a pretty crocheted tablecloth (in a thrift store or flea market or yard sale) to attach the finished project to. It will be sort of like a hexie topper with a swirly skirt! LOL!
Speaking of the board meeting, our new guild president, Jane, has the most beautiful home! In addition to being a quilter, she's also a master gardener, so her yard was lovely. But I was quite taken with this darling little critter in her front yard . . .
Isn't he fun? Much better than the real thing (it's an armadillo) which she told us they get a lot of up on the mountain, there!
I was keeping my pretty little hexie pieces all together in this sweet little bag that the outgoing president made for each of her board members . . .
I love the colors in this -- right up my alley! And it's the perfect size for my bigger hexies. I also came home two fat eighths richer . . .
Everyone got to pick their two favorites as a pot luck favor! I'll happily add these to August's intake.
I also came into possession of this sweet little pin keeper:
Isn't it beautiful? My friend over at Quilting Lion, awarded it to me for submitting the winning theme to her Christmas stocking exchange for this year. The theme I submitted was All That Glitters! No surprise there, either, huh??!
And finally, one last item for the design wall (or design back-of-the-chair, as the case is here).
I'm interviewing fabrics for another spirograph piece. This one will be a hostess gift, so I'm trying to think autumn ... to match the record cool temperatures we're experiencing down here in the Heart of Dixie!
Linking up today's post with Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times and Design Wall Monday as well Kathy's Quilts Slow Sunday Stitching (seeing as how that's how I spent the majority of my day yesterday)!
