It's Back!

My machine is back!  All ready for me to spend the summer sewing.  I'm so happy and excited.  I do have a few things to show you.  I didn't totally waste my time while the machine was in the shop.  (Even though I did spend a fair amount of time on Pinterest.)  First up, my hexies.

I finished cutting out the yellow centers I needed for where I am at with this project.  I currently have 52 hexies cut and ready to be put together.  Not exactly sure how many I'll need as these are big hexagons, but I am trying to make it for a king size bed.  So... if I make one flower a week, I'll have them done in a year.  Do I want to make that kind of commitment?  Should I make that kind of commitment?  I know I can handle it during the summer, but once I'm back to work, it will be hard to keep up.  I'll think about that one some more.

I made a few more string blocks.  Love making these as they are so no mind for me.  Great for when I want to take it easy but not think about whether I have my points or seams matched.

These are the little four patch blocks I've been sewing up as leaders and enders as I work on the Orca Bay quilt.  Speaking of which, I think I have about 4 more rows to go and then its border time!  Hope you're enjoying your sewing/quilting time!
