It's been back to work after vacation so things have slowed down on the quilting front, but there has been some progress on Minnie - three more four-diamond diamonds have been put together and are waiting for their next border of hexies.
I needed more soft yellows and pinks and found a nice selection of yellows at the local shop; I couldn't resist a little piece of that blue either...
...and a bit of digging in the sewing room produced a few pinks/mauves. I cut 1.5" strips and then using my template and small scissors, cut my hexies, so all of these strips are now little piles of hexies.
I've been making more of the smallest diamonds and couldn't help but notice that two of them had the blossoms made from Jane's scrap bag. There literally wasn't more than enough for about six little hexies from that cream print, but it's just enough to add more variety.
And this blue-grey is lovely too - both great mementos from a generous friend sewn into my quilt.
Now that this new batch of strips have been cut I've been having fun creating the fabric sets for new diamonds, but I've also spent a little time at the machine, with great success. I'll have that to show you the next time (the suspense is killing you, right?)...M
