Works In Progress - A little late is...

Better than never or so the saying goes.  It has been awhile since I posted my WIP's.  There seems to be quite a few and some that I can't reveal too much about.

I decided to keep with the hand stitching but am on and off with several projects. (Waiting on some different fabrics) I picked up these cute kitchen towels at Colonial Patterns a few months back and hadn't decided what pattern to stitch on them until I found.... 

The Stitcher's Revolution Kitch'n Stitch'n.  Loved the Vintage Retro look of the pattern.  Too cute!   They have some really great looking patterns in the Stitcher's Revolution for guys, gal and sew crafty. (I need to get this one.)

I (of course) am still Hexing.  Only 5 flowers left.  (Maybe)  The project keeps growing larger and larger and is way different than anything I have done before. It will be the second largest quilt I have made, but alas all I can show you are the few that have yet joined the group already sewn together.  The sign-up for the

Sew we quilt

started today.  You better hurry and get a spot if you want to join in on all the Hexing fun.

Lastly, the Aurifil BOM July block, which is all hand pieced.  You had your choice of pieced it like you would a Hexagon or hand sewing it all together.  I chose to piece it like I do my hexies.  While I love to piece Hexagons, this is a different story.  A definite learning experience!  I will show you the front after it is all pieced together.  I think I need to do a little seam ripping for the seams to line-up perfectly.  Every time I hand piece a block, I have a new respect for the women of the old times with no sewing machines or rotary cutters.  What artists they were!! 

The lovely places I link to....
