On Monday I taught the "Charm Pack Quilt" class in my home and we had a BLAST!!!! 

This pattern I made up as I sewed along and wanted to share with friends.
Their were some very experience quilters and some that had never used a rotary cutter.

Had 4 of these beauties humming along. A very relaxing sound to hear a Featherweight machine chugging along. You can't make them fly, they go one speed..... slow.

My 2 hexagon flower for One Flower Wednesday. It has been a long time since I have hand pieced a quilt and I forgot how much I love this slow process. Gives me time to enjoy the fabric and do a lot of thinking. I love doing things the "old" way, using featherweight machines and hand piecing. I feel connected with quilters from long ago who made their quilts to be remembered. 
I"m remembering Ladies.

P.S. I love the charm pack quilt!!

Such pretty flowers. I especially like your comment about enjoying the fabric when we hand sew. So true!

When I started my hexies, I had no idea that I would enjoy the hand sewing so much. It's my relaxation therapy.

Lovely hexie flowers

Very nice flowers!

I love my fancy machines, but there really is nothing like sitting down to do some hand stitching!

LOVE the charm quilt!

Nice flowers. Hand sewing the hexies makes me love my fabric scraps all over again.

Sandra said...

Your hexies are lovely. I also enjoy the process of hand-piecing a quilt and I agree with you. There is nothing like the sound of an old Singer:)

Joan said...
