Well, I am WAY out of practice with blogging, and I am WAY behind on posting what's been going on in my world, but here I am ready to hit the reset button and began again...
Instead of starting with getting everyone (is anyone still out here reading?!) caught up on the last six months, let me tell you about one of my favorite ongoing projects at the moment.
I call these Happy Flower Blocks. I love making them and have turned quite a few into pincushions, but I am now saving them all for a throw size quilt.
A while back I made a hexie flower for Eleni and loved how Jodi stitched them all onto background squares. I really enjoyed making that hexie block, but I am not a big fan of stitching all the hexies together. Later I ran across this block on Amy Sinibaldi's Instagram feed and knew that was the EPP block I wanted to use. I could not find reference to this block anywhere else, so I started calling it the Happy Flower Block.
Stitching these blocks make me happy. It's nice to just sit, slow down, and stitch for a bit. Having a project that I can work on and hang out with my family is a bonus.
Sometimes I'll just sit and whip up a bunch of hexies, other times I will sew the four hexies onto the black square until I have a few, but my favorite part is stitching the flower onto the background square.
I now have 28 blocks made for my throw quilt....only a hundred or so more to go!
If you are still here, please leave a comment and say hi! I sure have missed being here. Thanks and happy stitching,
