    Hummingbird Step

    I just finished piecing together my second hexie hummingbird for a new quilt… and while it’s not the greatest photo, I just had to share! It’s on my design wall right now – time to pick a background fabric to appliqué it onto. I was thinking something on the darker side, since a lot of the fabrics are pretty […]

    Hexie Hummingbird Quilt Finish!

    Super excited to share my last quilt finish – the Hexie Hummingbird! This was a super fun project – especially trying to make-do with the fabric I have on hand. It’s a smaller quilt, finishing at 34″ wide x 39″ tall, perfect for a wall hanging. When I last blogged about this project, I was […]

    Unexpected Setbacks

    They happen… unexpected setbacks. I signed up to do a blog post a day, but missed yesterday – and even writing this is difficult. I’m just having some digestive issues, and it is currently causing a bout of dizziness. That makes it really hard to look at a screen of any sort without a bit […]
