W.I.P Wednesday

Its Wednesday again and I'm heading over to visit Lee at Freshly Pieced to join up to W.I.P Wednesday.

So this week I was busy on my machine when the kids were asleep. I wanted to stay ahead with my secret project and my Synchronized Squares Quilt Along. I have managed to get some sewing done on both and the machine is coming out this evening for another workout.

I also managed to add to my Snickerdoodle Paper Bag Swap. I finished off the purse
other than some last minute hand sewing and I decided to use Lee's Hexing Around Block to turn into a cushion. When she posted the tutorial I was instantly addicted wanting to give it a go because after all it is a gigantic hexagon block. So thanks Lee for a great tutorial and easy piecing block. So this is what I sewed together...

And this is the finished block hand quilted ready for the back piece to be sewn and added to the finished block. I love how it came together. I would definitely make it again. Well actually I have an idea for a quilt using the Hexing Around Block and paper piecing but you will just have to wait and see if it eventuates.

I didn't manage to get any of my hexagon diamonds completed this week. 

So next week its about turning some W.I.P.s into finished projects. I could even have some finished quilt tops to show off to you all.


  1. Love those beautiful bright colours. Will make a fabulous cushion.

  2. I hope it turns into a quilt cause I'd love to see how that would look!

  3. The hand stitching is so lovely! The patience to do that escapes me. Would you hand quilt the quiltop made with those as well?

  4. That is going to make a cute cushion!

  5. Your hand-quilted hexing around block looks so fabulous! I love it! It always makes me so happy when somebody uses one of my tutorials. : ) : )

    I really hope you do the hexie/paper-piecing combo idea, I'm super curious about that! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday.


I love to see what people write. Please leave me a comment.
