2016??

Hard to believe another year is over! Onward to 2016!

Today my slow stitching project is my hexie project. I have thought about trying inklingo for a really long time after seeing how well it worked for Karen over at Karen's Quilts. Finally about a month ago I bit the bullet and downloaded one of the hexie sets. So far (I have 3 done so far) I really like it. I enjoy hand piecing and really didn't like hexies when whip stitching and using EPP. I know alot of people love it, I am just not one of them. The printing on fabric scared me but Karen over the last year or so answered alot of questions for me and it is really easier than I thought it would be. Here are a couple of pictures of the project I am planning on working on this year. Since I have alot of other projects going also it will be a long term project.



First picture is the one I am working on right now. It will be the red one in the second picture. I have 2 of the first row flowers done and one of the jacks looking one on the second row finished.

Linking up to Kathy's Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday. Go by there and see what others are working on today.

I had to come over and look to see which hexie project you are doing. I'm so glad that I was able to answer some questions for you - it really is just so easy hand piecing and the lines isn't it. I still think about doing EPP one day but two times have tried it and both times quit - it might not be for me either
