Paper Piecing Items as Promised..

Speaking of paper piecing, this is one of two European sized pillows to match my hexagon quilt from 2011
which is featured way back in a similar dated post on this blog.


I  started these smaller hexagons, along with the small stars for another quilt, early last year. With last year's   hiatus in my stitching, very little was accomplished.


 I've started doing more hexagons & stars over the last month, so I'm anticipating faster progress as I 'm able to return to my stitching groups. The finished quilt is still a long way away.

The stars are smaller than the hexagons & I've not made as many. I can almost make both without concentrating. I find it is easier to charge ahead if I have a cutting/preparation day prior to stitching day.

I'm needing to have a prep day as I've not many ready to go right now.
That's all for now, call back to watch the progress.


  1. I'm so glad you're posting again--it would have been a shame not to show us all you are working on! What a gorgeous pillow :)
