Loose Threads: Ohio Collection and Hexagons

Ohio Collection and Hexagons

I'm beginning to put my Ohio Collection blocks together.  I still have a couple of blocks to complete plus some filler blocks, and then the quilt top will be complete.  My supervisor, Tiki, approves of the blocks so far.  


I can see that the end is in sight, so I've completed quite a few blocks this week.  There are too many to fit on my design wall now.

Ohio Star

Love Apple


Tree Everlasting


Cherry Basket


Vine



I English paper pieced this LeMoyne star before and decided that I'd go ahead and applique' it to a piece of background and try to fit it in the quilt.


This one is called Spice Pink.  I spent yesterday afternoon on the porch doing the applique' centers.



Old Tom was done before, and I embroidered his eyes and nose on yesterday afternoon.  I used a tutorial for embroidering berries from Karen at Faeries And Fibres Blog.  She has some really nice tutorials on her blog that you should check out.  I like the face on Old Tom even if he does have kind of a "people nose".  


Karen,  Nancy, and Cathy have completed their quilt tops.  Lori and I are close!

I've missed my English Paper Piecing, so I've started a new hexagon project using some bright hexagons from a project that I started awhile ago.  I've added more hexagons to those.  And, you can see the squares I have cut to do even more.  I'm not exactly sure where this project is going, but I have some ideas.  More on that in another post.


The weather here has been just beautiful.  I hope you are finding some time to sit outside and do a bit of stitching.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Good progress on the Ohio quilt. The partial seams will take you a while in sewing the blocks together but oh so worth it in the end.

Beautiful blocks LuAnn. You are almost there.
