Even though I didn't finish the block on time doesn't mean I wasn't thinking about hexagon blocks. I did a little shopping last week too and found a bunch of civil war fabrics that I liked for my quilt. I spent the weekend washing and pressing them, and I can't wait to make up some blocks with the blues and browns. I'm getting a little tired of red and tan right now.
I also found a few more batiks for the Star Crazy blocks, two gorgeous Jinny Beyer border fabrics, a sweet little floral for a couple of pillowcases, and a few other little odds and ends.
My niece and my son's friend are both expecting this summer, and I wanted to make little sweaters for the babies. I have a pair of booties and a bonnet already made up in a butter colored acrylic for the friend but still have to make the sweater.
I also found a couple balls of Cotton Kisses, a cotton blend that makes up into either a cardigan or a pullover. Each ball of yarn is a complete kit with the pattern instructions and little ducky buttons tucked inside the ball of yarn, which I thought was a cute idea. I'll be using this textured yarn for a little button up hoodie for my niece.
