What are you most proud of? Here is the long awaited (at least by ME) final hexi block. Tried for weeks to get this the way I wanted and while it may seem ordinary, it is one of a kind....LOL This is not squared up yet - I know I will have to adjust at the final setting, so I wanted room to play with later. Please note the black cat on the fence post - just a small way to bring in my background fabric. I used my paisley first and kitty was too small, so I switched to black and I liked it so much better... lots of hand applique during tv viewing. Wish my stems were a little more curvy, but just want this done before I was dead.... WHEW....now I can move on to September

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Skip this block --- just kidding~!

Really great job Surfside! Love the details of the fence and Cat!

That was fun to do, if time consuming. I don't think I'll be doing many hexies in my lifetime. I'm mostly happy with the end result and thrilled that so many have commented on it. I guess I struck a chord with the kitty!

Desna - so sad to hear about Tiggy. He had a wonderful life and had a special quilt to take with him to his reward. It's been a few months now since we lost our dog and I still look for her under my feet before I get out of my chair or in her usual spots. It's part of the grieving process, I guess. I'm glad you have some wonderful memories.

Thanks surfside, it will take us some time to stop looking out for him as we had Tiggy 17 years. Memories are so wonderful and thanks for your lovely words xxx

Thank you so much. I am hoping to add a few leaves to soften the flowers a little, but I love it for something different

Now that's really different! You've made something really unique and I love the little cat! Excellent!

Oh, thanks --- Glad you saw something special in my "project". It was a lot of work, believe it or not. Glad I got it done finally, and I love it.

Thank you - It's one of my favorites but needs a little tweaking if I can get to it. Still plugging along on the rest of the blocks here and there.
