Spring Fling Hexagons

Don't you just love weekends? 

Sleeping in (sometimes!), routines out the window, catching up with family and friends and time for sewing.....
Oops, I cut a little off in the photo but you get the idea (I hope!).
This is one of the four mini quilts we are teaching at Spring Fling with Lilly Patches
on Saturday October 13th.

Now to quilt and bind it and I'm actually ahead of schedule.  We have discovered that we work very well under pressure but occasionally it's nice not to be under the hammer!

My applique is blanket stitch which I haven't done since making
 McKenna Ryan's Storybook Farm quilt. 

I'd forgotten how quick and easy it is. 
I think that's one of the things I love about quilting, the options.
Today I'll do some applique....needleturn, raw edge, blanket stitch.... or maybe some piecing.....machine, hand, foundation, English paper ...... or how about stitchery, candlewicking, embroidery..... 
With so many options available to us, it's no wonder we have so many UFO's WIP's! 

Enjoy your sewing, whatever your working on!
