Prettiest Quilt Shop, Crocheted Hexagon Blanket, Plaid Tilda Flimsy, Strawberry Season from Canadian Needle Nana

 Remember I shared with you I had taken a fall last month? It is mostly better; I still feel a twinge when I lie on my left side a certain way. I must have bruised a muscle there. I mention this again because it reminded me about a blog I used to follow faithfully, the Carolina Stitcher. Faye, back in 2019, took a very bad fall which broke her arm in two places and shattered her elbow. Her son gave several updates on her blog but then nothing. Just wonder what happened to her. Anybody know??  As for myself, I ...

The Ups and The Downs from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

I don't like change!  How about you?

It took me a while (as I'm sure it did you) to settle into a Covid way of life and find a level of contentment in what I could safely function.  Now it seems I have to reverse engines and go back the other way.  The question is how far back do I want to go? 

As things would have it, an official diagnosis of arthritis in my back last week will be a factor in my return to "normal" (whatever that is?).  It's been suspected for several years and ...

I have been replenishing my stash of hand made buttons and small patchwork pieces. You can never have too many buttons and the patchwork pieces are really useful for page embellishment in artist books.

The Treehouse Hexagon Quilt Project from Red Pepper Quilts

The Treehouse Hexagon Quilt Project © Red Pepper Quilts 2022 #hexagonquilt #englishpaperpieced

My first official finished quilt for 2022 and my goodness, I so love everything about this quilt. It is of course another slow sewing project - English paper pieced - a process that continues to hold all of my attention. Hexagons especially are a favorite. I know they're not for everyone, as they can be tedious to piece with lots of stop/start seams. But I just love them, I could sew hexagons all day, every day right now.

Modern Hexagon Quilt from Red Pepper Quilts

A Finished Quilt
Modern Hexagon Quilt © Red Pepper Quilts 2021

Hexies are my favorite! I keep coming back to this shape for English paper piecing, and even though the hexagon shape doesn't lend itself to continuous piecing - there's a lot of stop/start sewing - I still love it. Hexies are so versatile, the layout possibilities are endless, and with the right mix of fabric you can have a traditional quilt with a modern feel.

I have been creating little embellishments, small pieces of embroidery and patchwork using paper and cloth.
Having a collection of these pieces to hand is essential when I create a new artist book. They fill pages, they are extra adornment
