Finally, some significant progress to post on my hexagon quilt.  I still have one rosette to go, but the center rosettes have now been added to the diamond blocks.  I’m beginning to see a tiny speck of light at the end of a very long tunnel!

Once a month a friend opens the fabric shop that is attached to her retreat house to the entire quilting community. The day includes show and share, a look at upcoming retreats and classes, and lunch.   Usually there’s a conflict on that Saturday, and I miss out.  This time, however, I was able to go and brought home these lovelies.  Hubby has gotten to a point in his recovery where I’m comfortable leaving him at home for longer periods and I really enjoyed the break.  

Summer has set in with a vengeance.  Good weather to stay inside and quilt.

So glad you are getting some freedom to get out and bring home fabric! Your hexie project is looking so great. Avoid the heat...quilt!

it looks great!! I thought I had a plan for mine and now I don't - after I finished the center I was going to applique it to a background and then do a border and now I'm thinking more hexies instead - it is put aside while I think

Hi Mary, Beautiful Hexie quilt! I haven't gotten into hexie's-mainly because I know how addictive they are to make and I'm afraid I'd never get anything accomplished. Love your fabric! You friend sounds wonderful; our mini group recently had a sew day where we all brought something to work on and the hostess served us lunch-it was so fun.
Glad you are able to get out and that your hubby is recovering.
Have a great week and Happy Stitching.
Hugs, Noreen
