Turning Twenty Quilt Update: My rows are begging to be sewn together into a top My color photos turned out all blurry. Here is my "value checking shot." Sometimes it is hard to tell if your colors are balanced when looking at a quilt in person/in color. Taking a black and white photo helps me figure out if my placement is too clumpy. Even though I checked and rechecked, I see one block is turned the wrong way. I wonder if I should rip it out...I probably won't!

For the love of HEXAGONS! Not sure what to make with these little cuties but I have been hand sewing these like crazy. Its an addiction. This is a picture of every hexagon I have made to date. :) I ran out of paper pieces otherwise I'd have more already!

Also, I am learning applique. I love learning a new technique...here is a progress picture for you! I plan to have a whole post dedicated to this awesome little turtle or Honu as the Hawaiians call them. All the fabric you see here I picked up at a fabric sale held in the Fitchburg Library, what a score!

This months Stack Stash Club arrived from Pink Castile Fabrics. I think this months (violet) stack
is my favorite! Love the leaf print the most.
What should I make with my Lizzy House charms?!
What are you working on?
