 Update with the New quilt...... I have started on the black and white fabrics..... I have only one section left..then I can start piecing all the blocks together.!!!1
 Update on the Old quilt..... I have made more hexies....
 Testing my hexies on different background fabrics.....
 I settled on this green... sewing it all down.....
then I removed the back fabric....

More work to do...but it is all coming along.

Of course...it would all go faster if I would stop making art journals...LOL!!!
