|The pattern is Blast Off! by Debby Kratovil|
I've even started quilting it. So far I have done a little SID around the blocks and big, loopy FMQ in the green bug blocks.
I've also made progress on my hexie flower quilt. All 56 flowers are now cut and basted, so I've started cutting the blue pieces that will go between the flowers. As I'm sure you can understand, I couldn't resist laying out a couple of flowers with the blue pieces once I had a few basted.
I really like how the bright flowers pop against the dark blues. Last time I posted about this quilt I said I needed 300+ blue hexagons. As I was laying these ones out I realized that was a mistake. Out came the calculator and I discovered I actually need 672! And that's only to make a ring around each block...I may need more to create a border of some sort once I get to that point. I think I figured it out correctly before I bought the blue fabric, but we'll see as I keep going. I now have 60ish blue hexagons basted, so I'm 1/10 of the way...leaving me with 600 or so to go!
The Say it with Flowers blog hop is over...what a lot of fabulous projects were featured this time around. You can see them all here. The winners of my two extra thread catchers are Scrapbook-ChickADoodle and Bonnie58. Emails have been sent to both. Congratulations ladies!
I'm linking up again today with Lee at Freshly Pieced. There are always lots of amazing projects on the go.
