Work in Progress Wednesday-#27

Written by Laura Chaney, daughter

I'm definitely getting back into the swing of things with my hand sewing.



This week I cleaned out my little English Paper Piecing Yazzi kit, putting away the hexagons that I've already basted and cleaning out the nest of thread clippings that always seem to accumulate.

I spent some time basting more hexagons, but also sewed three flowers together. All of the hexagons are from scraps in my collection. Some of them are my fabric, but a lot of the ones I've been working with lately are from scraps I inherited after my Grammy (who, along with Mom, taught me to quilt) passed away.




I really love seeing other people's works in progress, so I'm linking this up with Life Under Quilts EPP Count, She Can Quilt's Scraptastic Tuesday, and Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday.

  9. I love your hexie flowers; the stories/links/heritage that goes along with each and every piece makes these all the more treasured. I know that your Mom and your precious Grammy are smiling... even from Heaven. :)
