Slow Stitching Sunday

I got a few pieces added to my scrappy hexie quilt yesterday and hope to complete another row today. 

This is where it is at right now. 
 At this point, it measures approximately 46 x 53 inches. I should decide how much bigger I want it to be! 

I’ve also been working on blocks for the first sister quilt. 


I have enough parts cut for 64 blocks even though I only need 48. I will use the extra 16 for a baby quilt. It would be tempting to stop after 48 and just put this top together. However, making all the blocks first insures the best distribution of the prints. 

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.
