A Much Needed Change of Scenery

We took a brief, but much needed, break from the heat last week
 by escaping to our cabin in Colorado. 
 It was by no means cold up there and there were very few signs of Fall,
 but at least we could hike in the early hours of the day and just enjoy the fresh air.

While I was there, I took a break from technology...
except, of course, WWF and Pinterest...
and worked on hexies.
Here are my latest additions:
I am getting to the point now that I need to start making the setting hexies.
They will be from the background B&W fabric.  
Then I can start to sew them all together;
 and who knows,
perhaps the kids will have a quilt on their 5th anniversary
 at the rate I am going!

My primitive pumpkins quilt is basted for machine quilting.
I hope to get started on it next week.


  1. How nice you were able to get away to your cabin in Colorado ! Just love these little hexies & I can not wait to see your Primitve Pumpkins quilt when you are finished

  2. I just love the colors in your hexies. They make me want to touch them but it just gets fingerprints all over my monitor. I also like the picture of your little houses in your blog header. I love making those little things and cannot decide when I will stop and put them together.

  3. Oh, a cabin. How wonderful! We spent a week in the Smokey Mtns. in a cabin about a month ago. So restful and peaceful.

  4. Neat,Cheryl that you have a get-a-way and a cabin too!!! Wonderful and peaceful for sure.

    Hexies are fun for a change...and if you do make them into a quilt how lucky they are...it will be a treasure for sure!

  5. Such pretty fabrics! They will really pop with a B&W background.
    Glad you were able to escape the heat. We aren't so much hot as humid. It's even sticky in the mornings when the temps are in the 70's. I'm looking forward to fall.

  6. A change of scenery always helps charge the batteries. Always enjoy seeing different hexie projects. Your hexies are reminiscent of some of the beautiful flora that you photograph.

  7. gorgeous jewel tones ~!!~ can hardly wait to see them with your chosen setting fabric.


  8. Very pretty hexies--nice fussy cutting! (and I love your page header quilt!)
