Marie:

ROFLMAO!  Boy Frances, you sucked me right into this hexie project and know you hit me with 81 1/2" HEXIES, NOT FAIR!  

 

Marie, I'LL HELP!!!!!!!  I don't want you plotting revenge on Frances!

Seriously, if you'll cut out all the 

 

Marie, don't plot revenge on Frances. If you will cut out all the 81 hexies and mail them to me i will baste and sew them together for you, Then you'll just have to sew them to your background when i send them back.

oh, cool deal :)      I just cut out the paper tonight.... next decide on colors :)    I am enjoying this, and when my husband saw me cutting these he said how are you going to sew fabric to that tiny piece?  hahahha  I said I am glad it is just one block and not a whole quilt !  I admire those who can do a whole quilt with the 1/2 size.  I have been just sewing my scraps to 1 inch hexies but have no idea what I will do with them :)  I have been looking at the quilts where they make a vase and a flower arrangements with them, very cute...  here is a link

Okay girls,

Block 3 is now up and yes i have put it on early but im on holiday on Friday and i have no internet access so i didnt want you to have to wait for me.

Marie,

Ive given you an easy option, so dont plot revenge.

Jacy, thats very kind of you to offer to do Maries, just be careful she doesnt send you all her quilts that she wants finished :-))

Sandy, Your husband could always give you a hand basting the hexies. :-))

lots of love

Francesxx

Frances we were very fortunate  they storms were all around us, but we missed the awful stuff. I'm watching CNN now about what went on yesterday in Oklahoma, I'm praying those kids are found  and are okay , what a terrible ordeal for those parents .  Just keeping them in your thoughts and prayers is all we can do . they have the national guard there now so hopefully they can help keep order and help with the recovery .  this happens here every few years ,I'm just so sorry it had to be inthe same city over and over ..  .

I have the hexies printed; just need to cut them out and pick my fabrics. Once I get started I will be at it until they are done, I am just having a hard time getting started.. that is whole lot of tiny hexies!!!!  lol

 The past couple day I've been making crazy quilt blocks...I like the whole idea of just going for it, no pattern to follow and no mistakes to worry about!   I've ordered some embellishments and a book about CQ so I want to get block #3 done before that stuff gets here!

Barbara, your scraps are being put to good use, they are the start of my first crazy quilt :D  I am separating them by colors and making color coordinated blocks. 

Frances have fun on your holiday- we are not doing anything fantastic this year but we are going to spend 4 days in Cincinnati and hit the zoo, Kings Island, ride the river boat and a Reds game.  Cupcake is going with us or I'd be going to the casino river boats and more baseball...LOL  

It's been hi 80's the past 3 days and they are saying we'll hit 90's today...thank goodness for AC, the humidity kills me!  I have tried to be outside for some fresh air and sun but I can only do it for about an hour at a time.  Rain is moving in tomorrow I guess, not sure of temps though. 

So upset over the tornado in Moore OK....I cannot even watch TV, I just start crying!  Saying an extra prayer for those effected....

Piece, Love, Quilt

Barbara,

Really glad youre okay sending a huge hug now..................there you should have it, everything always seems closer now that i know (well virtually) people over there always thoughts and prayers for everyone suffering so much, my Dad was asking why a lot of your houses are made of wood and not brick like ours, im presuming that its because you dont have the clay as a natural resource to make the bricks am i right or is there some other reason???

lots of love

Erin,

Talking about Crazy quilts, have you seen the film how to make an American Quilt, well in that film was a crazy quilt, which you see about 2 seconds of but there was a book to go with it which told the story of the quilts in the film and how they were made, there is a beautiful picture of the crazy quilt in there, oh this is the book its not really a how to book but it does give you a better look at the quilts than the film does.

If i can find my copy of the book i will pm a picture of the quilt, dont want any probs with copyright etc so i will pm it.

lots of love

Francesxx

Jacy, you are so sweet to offer, thank you.  If I can't suck it up and do them I'll make the larger version Frances recommended but I really do like the original sized block she made, it's really pretty.  I'll be a good girl, since you asked nicely, and not plot revenge on Frances.  I really do love you Frances.
