Slow Sunday Hexies

This past week has been one that was rather productive for me and now I reward myself with some slow, relaxing handwork. The EPP possibilities continue to fascinate me, so I am ready to work on some more.

For our Friday morning group - Frankfort Girls - I glue-basted this wonderful little stack of elongated hexies for that waterfall-type quilt I want to make. The two fabrics are those random ones I bought at Pohlars in Indiana a week ago. The waterdrop blue is a fabric I bought back in April for this quilt; that stack will be glue-basted after I cut the hexie points. Below is a picture of a few of the hexies put together in random fashion. It's hard to make this look like water with such a small sampling; I definitely need more blues.

Then, I have also been hankering to do another POTC block, so I have this center for a start.

I have a wonderful piece of Marcus fabric which lends itself to fussy cutting. I definitely need to work on perfecting my fussy cutting skills.

So besides stitching, I will also spend a good portion of the afternoon with my friend Cheryl poolside. Rest and relaxation, ahhh. 

I am linking up with Kathy and her Slow Sunday party.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

Your EPP blocks look very nice. I have the book for POTC and the fabrics too. I just need to get started but I'm tired of having so many project going at a time and want to finish some of the other first. The border print looks like a fun one for this project. How many of the blocks have you completed? Enjoy the pool.

Pool and stitching. Sounds like a winning combination.
