Be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded. ~ 2 Chronicles 15:7, NLT
I've been busy, not sewing but getting ready for others to sew for me. By now everyone knows how I love "hexies." Well, recently I ran into a Quilting Bee called "Get Your Hex On #3." Two Bees are already completely filled and well on their way to creating hexie treasures. Bee #3 is just getting started and I'm the first Queen Bee. I found his interesting wall hanging called "The Flower Ball," by Geta Grama, Copyright 2012.
I think it's gorgeous. It's not made up of perfect hexie shapes but rather odd-shaped hexies in order to give the ball it's 3-D look. I divided the ball up into hexie flowers with a few cream-colored hexies around it. Each member of the Bee, including myself, will sew up a group which I will later sew together to form the ball. I'm excited about this but, as usual, the prep work takes a while, especially when you have to explain to others what you're trying to do.
I'm also working on the "Argyle Quilt-Along" tutorial by Jess at "Quilty Habit." It's an interesting and supposedly fast quilt to make. Here's what I've done so far.
I hope your Monday has been lovely.
That is all.
