{Post 1,352} In NY for a Wedding!

The top picture is one I took at home last night.  It's time to start putting the blocks together.  I had to see where I wanted them.  Unfortunately, after sewing on the way here, I realized I need many more foundations.  It seemed like I got a lot of sewing done.  If you compare the pictures, it wasn't really that much.  I did forget to put something in the finished picture.  The block in the top picture (blue block in the center in the bottom row) has all of the cream patterns round sewn onto it.  I am nearly out of hexagon foundations, so I sewed some diamonds on so I could remove and reuse the hexagons.  Now I'm nearly out of diamonds (and out of green fabric I brought for the trip).  

My friend drove all 12 hours up here.  It was a rather uneventful trip.  Thank God.

For goodness sakes, Joan, we are eachon the same path. Hour hexie is all new, I am repairing my Mother's GFG, and learning a LOT, without having to make one entire quilt, although I'm starting to FEEL like making one of my own. Aren't they addictive? very pretty choice of colors.

Also, how nice to see your face! I had you pictured with dark long hair! 8-))) Good job with the haircut, esp. if you need no extra "stuff"! I do the same - nothing helps mine much except haircuts. 8-)))

Happy quilting.

Me again - did you know you can purchase a Fiskars punch that will give you a perfect foundation, if that is how you are making your GFG. I'm probably in the dark, waaaay behind how you are making yours.
