Hex-a-day Week 1 Progress from Lilabelle Lane

Hex-a-Day

I have just finished today's Hexie so in my attempt to return to regular blogging 
and blogging my Hex-a-Day project here on a Sunday, 
allow me to present the remainder of this weeks Hexagons.




If you would like more information on the calendar I am using please see my previous post.
I am aiming making one Hexagon a day using my Bonnie and Camille scraps.

I had better go and clean up my mess before our puppy decides my fabric is there for her enjoyment!

Happy Stitching,

Sharon x

Hexie -a-day with Katja Marek from Lilabelle Lane

I have invested in
The New Hexagon - Perpetual Calendar 
by Katja Marek for my work desk.
Each day has a new Hexagon.

Instead of just looking at the hexies each day as I flip the calendar over I thoughgt that I might actually try to sew one a day.  I know that some days it will not be possible so on those day I will not stress but try again the next day.  Realistically, one a day for me will be much easier once the kids are back at school in February!


To make the task a little more achievable ...

Power Sewing! from A Quilting Sheep


I grabbed up every second I could get to sit at my machine and make up these sweet spool blocks. It didn't take long before the top was all put together! No two spools are alike. I used 72 different fabrics from my expansive Bonnie and Camille stash. I added some yellow from other lines to give me more variety. The ribbon border fabrics are repeats of what are in the spool blocks. I was too lazy to look for 24 more fabrics for that part. =) 


As soon as I got that done, I grabbed up a Little Ruby ...

My Bonnie and Camille Scrappy Pineapples from Lilabelle Lane

Playing with Pineapples again .....

This might just be one of my slowest growing machine pieced projects but I have upped the count from 5 to 8 pineapples and as you can see there is a colour change beginning to happen.



I am thinking that slow progress is better than no progress :)


Now I need to go scrap diving again so I can get to the next one.

Happy Stitching,

Sharon

Sew Sweet Bee Blocks from A Quilting Sheep

I have been way behind in getting my Sew Sweet Bee blocks done. Today was catch up day! I was a bit nervous sitting at my machine. It's been months since I have done any sewing. It was like riding a bike. You don't forget how. =) *whew*


The cake block was requested by Missy. You can see the other cake blocks that were made for her on her blog Missy's Homemaking Adventures. Now for a small confession. I made this cake block in the  Snapshots quilt along by Fat Quarter Shop, but I never finished the quilt ...

Saltwater Mini Quilt from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I've been back at the sewing machine,
and I've got lots of new things to show you.
 Today I'm sharing my Saltwater Mini Quilt,
made from the pattern by Thimbleblossoms.



I was craving a mini quilt, 
and this design looked like such fun to make.
I was not disappointed when I made it
from a few fat quarters of Hello Darling
by Bonnie and Camille.



I made this block first, and I was hooked.
The apple green looks so sweet with the
pink strawberry print.


Hmmm...I wasn't sure I liked the "busy" blocks ...

Little Ruby Table Topper from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I have a little table topper to share today.
I made it from a Mini Charm pack of Little Ruby
by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.


I didn't have a pattern for this table topper,
but I was definitely inspired by Sherri from A Quilting Life.
showing a sweet way to lay out the squares on point.

I had just received my mini charm pack,
and I just "needed" to make something with it.
I cut some a whole bunch of 2 1/2" white squares,
and ...

Playing my my scrap bins - Pineapples anyone? from Lilabelle Lane


Pineapples Anyone?


You know when you see something online, instantly you love it but you scroll past because you have so much on the go but then you find your thoughts turning back to it. Well this happened to me nearly a week ago. I was scrolling Instagram as one does and Julie at Intrepid Thread had posed about a new tutorial over on her blog with the following image.


You can find the tutorial HERE.

I knew that I wanted mine to be a scrappy Bonnie and Camille version as my scrap baskets are overflowing.  I am not ...

Quatro Colouring It! from Lilabelle Lane

Quatro Colouring

It feels like it has been so long since I have dived head first into my Bonnie and Camille scraps but this is what I have been doing recently.  Sometimes it is just a matter of finding the right project.

Sue Daley released a new pattern around Quilt Market time and I had the pleasure of seeing it in person and loved it. Initially I wanted to play in the same fabrics as Sue's but after finishing my "Southern Aurora Quilt" in those same fabrics I decided a change was needed and that Bonnie and Camille it ...
