I really wasn't sewing

Really, I did not do these this weekend. These are some of the hexagons that I put together following a class based on the 'One Block Wonder' books. I took the class at the Quilted Pearl several weeks ago. Sara Quattlebaum taught it and this is what I have so far. My design wall has shrunk due to "stuff" being "stuffed" into a corner of my studio. I am going to leave them on my wall for a week or two to simmer. I may have to stir them periodically to get just the right mix that suits me. Once I have the right mix, then I will start to sew them together.

This is the actual fabric. Isn't it amazing the difference? I really want most of the blue to be in the lower left corner. I have other blocks to go there, just not enough room. I am not real sure what size or what type of borders that I will put on this piece. Right now, it just has to simmer.

I spent most of the day finishing preparations for Quilt Camp. I have 6 projects to take with me. The major one is to catch up with my Baby Jane, I am so far behind. Then there is the quilt for the Library Exhibit for the end of the year. I also have fabric and an idea for the guild challenge that I might work on. It is hard to work on a Guild Challenge at camp since I can't keep it a secret from other guild members. I am lucky to have many of them with me.

I almost forgot!!! The Bra's are coming to Columbia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited about this. A gallery exhibit in the Vista area of downtown Columbia, S. C. Fantastic!

That's it for now. I'll be on retreat with Just Stitchin' Thursday to Sunday, so you won't hear from me. I really doubt that I will have a post until sometime next week. So, have a good week or two and stay tuned for more news.

love your one-patch wonder. I have fabric, that I bought last summer, to do one. Hopefully soon.
