Finally Fixed!

Yippee!! Hubby finally got my Gammill fixed last night and so I finished up the quilt that was loaded this morning before coming to work. I have had my machine now for a little over 10 years and have only had to take it in to be worked on once, a pretty good machine don't you think? I was just lost the last few days without it but hubby perserverd and this morning he is my "hero"! 2 more customer quilts and I am done with those then I can concentrate on the ministry quilts and "MAYBE" get my stack quilted.
During my quilting downtime I picked out the layout for my Hexagons I am piecing.


It will take me a while but I love this layout. Making the hexagons are so relaxing to me and I can use up so many little pieces of scraps, I just can't seem to part with those little Civil War fabrics.
I have decided to cut the pieces for my Grandaughters Quilting Day. I will probably get the "glove" and then we will have a few practice sessions. I know I would feel alot better doing it this way. Thanks to all who sent in the advice, I really appreciated it!
Another 7 degree morning here today but they say it will warm up later in the week. I have heard that one before! LOL May you be warm wherever you are!

Those hexagons are looking just yummy. No wonder you can't let even the little scraps go. Hope you manage to stay warm.

This layout is so interesting. Looks like tumbling blocks! I have never seen this before.

I love the arrangement of the hexagons. I don't think I have ever seen anything like it before.

Good morning,
I wanted to tell you I saw the actual hexagon quilt you posted in your blog. It is at the DAR (Daughter's of the American Revolution) Museum in Washington DC. I saw it while on vacation last May. It is incredible in person. The workmanship is exquisite, all the brown hexagons are fussycut to center a flower. I believe it was made in the 1860s. If you ever have a chance to see it you won't be sorry.
