Sew what.....

Okay....I thought I'd get a few rows sewn together on this today, but it just did not happen.  This is a quilt made using one fabric....can you see the bolt off to the right in the picture?  Well, you take the striped fabric and cut lengthwise strips. And then using a 60 degree triangle, you can cut the wedges for the hexagons.  I found if I was careful, I even will get the binding from the same fabric (the orange I have just kind of pinned to the sides).  I have to get some rows together at the top, though, because I am out of room on the design wall!  Isn't it going to be cool?!?  Maybe after the Tea Party tomorrow I can sew a row or two? Or not?

Jan and I had a great day today!  I had on the *To Do* list for her to try and cut a 60 degree runner out of the new Dear William fabric line.  (Guess it was kind of a 60 degree day!)  Not only did she cut a runner, but she cut some hexagon toppers too.  If you hop over to our Facebook page (link at top of blog) you can see how pretty they are.

How's your week sew far?  Retired guy and I just got back from shopping at Old Farts' Night at Fred Meyer....first Tuesday of the month is 55 and older discount day.  Groceries are put away and kitchen cleaned up.  Think I'll go take my shoes off and sit a spell.  What do you have planned this evening?
