Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the weekend! It has been a busy week for me. I have been working on several projects at one time. Also working on customer quilts! You can see the newest ones here, they are from a husband and wife quilting "team". See them in my gallery under the Recent Addition right sidebar.

Now onto my work. Well I have to say that I was channeling both Wanda and Karen. They both have wonderful organizational skills.

So here is my find... a $5.00 find at Wal-Mart in the fishing department. Yes, it is a tackle box.


But it is perfect for those little hexagons. You can close it and it has a space for everything and a handle for easy carrying. Pretty cool!

So it seems that the little hexies have become my night time project. I have been doing them while watching T.V. with hubby. Good busy work and addicting too! So I was able to finish 2 more flowers for my grandmother's flower garden quilt. Here is a peek....




I just love them! During the day, I have been working on a Judy Niemeyer paper piecing project that I started about 2 years ago and really want to finish. More on this in my next post.

Then a friend of mine, Leslie (no blog), was reading my last post and saw my hexies. She called me and said she wanted to come by to show me something. Later on she came by with this beauty.

Isn't it just gorgeous!! She said she has had this top for a while, not sure of the maker, but would love to have it hand quilted. I'll tell you, the pictures don't do this justice, it is a real beauty, just breathtaking and vintage to boot!!

So, of course, we did a photo shoot so that we could so this loveliness to all my bloggy friends. Don't you just love the close up?

Here is the back side. All hand sewn. Great workmanship. Thank you so much for sharing this treasure with me, Leslie! Don't forget to click on all the pictures for a closer look.

One other special item, if you would like to see some really good quilting inspiration, go here. I went, with my friend Pam, to the Empire Quilter's Guild show 2 weekends ago and I put a little slideshow together. I'll tell you they have some talented quilters there. There is also a few hexagon quilts you won't want to miss in this slideshow. We also had a chance to go into the fashion district, there are a few pictures of that too. A great trim place! So click on the link, turn on your volume and enjoy!!

Until Next Time,
