Morning Sewing

Since harvest is being drawn out because of all the rain we have had, I have had to find a project to work on before I go to work and when I come home late. I got out this Garden Path quilt to work on. I didn't like the patterns that came with this package, I like to cut nice even numbers and not make templates, so I just got out one of my books and picked out the ones I wanted to make.
Here are few of the blocks I came up with. I always buy extra fabric when doing a project so I didn't have to worry about running out.
I am ready to work on the finishing kit this weekend, they are calling for more rain here, so I should have some time to sew.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, we certainly have alot to be thankful for! Hubby and I will be taking my mother out to eat on Thursday and then will spend the latter part of the day with his family.

Vintage Patches

Another oldie but goodie! Last night I finished up this wonderful quilt called Vintage Patches by Evelyn Sloppy.
Many many years ago a few of us quilters were sitting around a table at Bits and Pieces and decided to have a block swap with this pattern. It was so much fun and alot of wonderful fabrics were used. Some ladies have had their quilts done for a long time and last night I put the last stitch in mine. I will treasure it always!

I have had a friend ask me how I do my Hexagons. I can't seem to upload this pix to my e-mail so I thought I would just post it on my blog. I have to baste the fabric to the little papers and then sew them all together. Once that is done I then take out the papers. So easy, a little more time consuming, but the only way I can keep the design to look like hexagons. Have fun with it!

It really is addictive and very portable. :D
