Hello! It has been weeks since I last posted anything! It has been a busy summer so far. I have been working at my job, we travelled to San Antonio for a couple of days, been sewing for a block swap due this weekend, sent my eldest back to college for his last year!!! No wonder I have not been around.
It has been unbelievably hot and dry here in Texas. We are breaking record temperatures this week with the forecast predicting (and achieving) temperatures of 108 F for the next few days. Hence the progress on my diamond hexagon quilt!!! It is too hot for mad dogs and Englishmen to be outside. The swimming pool is like a hot bath. So I stay indoors and stitch. It is also shark week on TV here, so I watch some of that while I sew.
I am predominantly using Kaffe Fassett's fabrics for this quilt. I am not sticking to the rule though. I have found a few other fabrics which have been wonderful alongside the Kaffe's.
I have 15 diamonds completed with the 16th well on its way to being finished. I can lay the diamonds out now and see a quilt starting to form.
I just love the bright colors of these fabrics. It certainly is going to be a very happy quilt.
Yesterday I received the latest edition of Quiltmaker in the mail. It is the September/ October edition and has the pattern for a stunning hexagon quilt on pages 46 -48. I might just have to make that one too.
Hope you are having a happy day!
