Paper piecing is so relaxing, I'm so glad that I saw the design above, it's beautiful.

Thank you, I have enjoyed the paper piecing on the little coasters I made, but I found these hexi blocks a little tedious but I am pleased with the outcome... and your comment very encouraging:)

These colors rock. So romantic. Is it a pack or do you have all this wonderful stuff in your stash? Yummy. I usually go for the vivids, but this is exceptionally beautiful

Ive only started quilting since my little granddaughter who was born in October, so I dont have a stash. I just went on some fabric websites and choose materials from different packs that I liked. I quite enjoy mixing and matching. I have been trying to look at yours and cant see where you projects are...

I cannot post as I do not have a camera. My kids do so I can see the grandkids, by e-mail, but they all live in other states, so I cannot borrow camera. I have a cheapy cell phone, but it only sends to another mobile phone. I may break down and get a camera just for this site. Although......I am nervous about people seeing my work who actually know what they are doing. LOL I do wish you could see my fabrics though. I think they are a little different. Also your fabrics remind me of the wallpaper in my Grandmother's bedrooms when I was a child.......a very fond memory

Aw you have to get yourself a camera... or better still ask for a camera for your next birthday???? Christmas???? Whichever comes first;) I would love to see your work and dont worry about others seeing it as I am only a beginner and get very nervous posting mine because of that magnifying thing where people can get very close to your work and see all the mistakes eek! On the up side it is so much fun getting feedback and so encouraging especially like people like you:))) Thanks for all the lovely comments.

Thanks, and if it is the hexi blocks your doing, it will be perfect to ease the long hours of travelling. Enjoy your trip:)

Wow! Thank you so so much... to be honest I was not a fan of hexi blocks but did have fun with these blocks although I could never do a whole quilt with hexis!
