    Getting It Together

    I just started putting the squid quilt together ~ this is the upper right corner. Super happy with how it’s coming out too! I have all the rows made and now I’m making and adding on the extra cream and grey hexies then sewing the whole row onto the existing piece. With each row I […]

    I’m finally finished with my piecing of the diagonal “strips” of my squid quilt!  YAY!  I got myself some cream and grey fabrics for the border… and so I need to make another 288 hexagons.  144 grey and 144 cream, and then I’ll add them onto the strips and sew them all together.  This is […]
