A quilt for my mom...

I am in the process of making a quilt for my mom. Her birthday is early June and I am hoping to have it done in time. I am using the Vintage Inspired Bear Paw quilt pattern from the Moda Bake Shop. I really liked the way it looked and thought it would be perfect for my mom. Instead of using charm packs and turnovers I am using a layer cake. I chose the Botany line by Laura and Jessi Jung and I have to say it is even more beautiful in person than it is online. The colors are just so vibrant and unique. I really love it! I am making 3 blocks in each of the 3 colorways (green/yellow, brown, pink, turquoise).

Hexagon Updates!

I have a lot of hexagon pictures to share, since it has been so long since I have posted anything. This is from Jaybird's Hexagon Quiltalong. It's a lot of fun and the design possibilities are pretty endless!

Unfortunately, my pictures kind of stink because by the time I get around to taking them it is dark outside. But I think you get the general idea.

These are just a few different ones I had made as of a few weeks ago.
And some ones I made last weekend.

And I made some large hexes in place of the small ones surrounded by solid.I can't wait to see how this is going to turn out!
