My traveling Hexies are on the road again! We are visiting family in Utah. I was able to find some more yellow and a green. One day this will be done....one day!

I have been working on being creative lately. I have limited time to be on my PC.I am making quilts. Last February I Met up with my BFF, Mona, in Florida. Moe has this Idea I need to run 5k races with her. So we did our thing. We have a great time and we hang out, as if we were teenagers again. I am sharing my Valentine present to my BFF. I used the Large 10" Hexy template by Natalie Dawn, a hexy template from Missouri Star Quilt Co. It goes together so quickly and not Y seams. This is a must have. tool. I would recommend to use it.

Since I longarm quilt three days a week, with one of those days being Saturday. I find less sew days available to sew projects. In my down time I have been converting quilt blocks into a pattern design, building a mystery quilt and finishing my block of the month. I also am taking a Judy Niemeyer paper piecing class. This along with my family keep me busy.
I find designing blocks into a pattern to be fascinating. Half square triangles, stars, pinwheels, snowball, rectangles, squares and hexi shapes all placed together to mix together to piece a lot of fabric to make a quilt. Color, blending, gradation I want to build a quilt to throw on my bed and snuggle with.
I found a new pattern that I want to make, so again I will start a new class in a two weeks. So another project begins, my life as a quilter!
