In our hurried packing, we forgot to bring the camera along for the trip, but we made do without. The beach quilt made the journey with us, and it looked perfectly at home on the sand with the sun beating down and waves crashing in the background. It was definitely a hit, and received many compliments and much praise! Its been washed at least 2 or 3 three times already, and I love how soft and crinkly its gotten and will now serve as a perfect "cuddle on the couch" quilt.
As for the current work in progress (very very early stages) I've had my eye on Julie at jaybird quilts hexagon quilt along for some time now, and have been waiting to get the urge to start a bigger project to dig in. Definitely head over to her website and check it out, such a neat way to make a whole quilt of hexagons with no hand piecing or tedious crazy machine piecing method (hint, you use a 60 degree triangle ruler and sew together half hexagons and then piece the entire quilt together row by row! Ingenious I tell you.
I dug into my half yard bundle of Good Folks fabrics and some others that were recently purchased on my perusal of fabricworm.com and just started mixing colors together.
I love these blocks, they remind me of kaleidoscopes! Check back for more progress soon!
