    AppleseedQuilter'sEarlier this week I spent two days in Fort Wayne with the Appleseed Quilter’s.   It was great fun and I do believe there will be some Pieced Hexies quilts/projects that will come out of this region.PHexies

    Remember Pieced Hexies designs can be applied to ANY hexie pattern that is out there.  It just takes things to a whole new level as Linda said in my workshop.   YES! I wanted to shout….she got it.

    If you have ever taken a workshop with me you know that this approximately 6″ x 8″ box travels EVERYWHERE with me.   I am constantly asked how I get so much done in what most perceive to be a very short amount of time.Box

    My answer. I use all the time I can each and everyday.  Meaning if there is a 10 minute wait…I can baste a few hexies.   So the box comes with me.   Usually there are a multitude of papers and PH blocks on top that I cleared out of the way so you can see what is in The Box.

    StuffAt my workshop I had a wonderful Teacher’s Angel to help me thru out the day.  That is so welcomed especially when the class is large.   Nancy was a treasure.   As she and I sat an chatted for a few minutes during a very brief lull she presented me with a giftie.  OH MY!  She knows just what I like.  I am all about the bag.  She laughed and pointed to my classroom suitcase in which everything was in a bag.  Samples, Handouts, equipment, sale items. etc.

    Ziploc loves me.

    As soon as I had Nancy’s gift in my hands I turned to her and told her it was just what I needed.  I had been squishing the Castle Wall block bags into “The Box” while on the road but was thinking they needed their own storage.

    And now they do.    This is going to be wonderful for when my travel swings back to air flights at the end of the month.  Yes I know those scissors are not TSA friendly.  I will swap them out in fact I found a new gadget to tell you all about for thread cutting…that will be another blog next week.  (look at me planning ahead!) SNEAK PEAK: upper right hand corner of box pic you will see a blue disc.

    CastleWallBlockSo thank you Nancy, for your help during class, your words of advice and kind comments, and for this wonderful zippered pouch.  I will think of you every time I reach for it during my travels.

    I just finished another block here at home…I felt the call to start a block during the movie Mud (highly recommend you watch this) and being the type A person I can be at times I had to finish up the block so that I could start a new one tomorrow night when I am in Madison.

    I am up to 8 blocks done now.   I grouped six earlier this week for a picture.   I  am loving the random scrappiness of this project.  Also loving them side by side without sashing…..hmmmmm.CWallQuiltBlocks

    Enjoy the day,

    Those are just so cute, I am tempted to print off some and start but I have too much unfinished projects right now. (however I did buy the Inklingo set when they came out so I am ready to start)

  4. Love those Castle blocks! Another EPP to try. I invite you to share your link at Hexie Weekend (closes Monday, midnight) Our readers would love to see what you are doing and the eye candy. Of course I love those hexies, too!
