Slow Stitching Sunday

Fall has definitely arrived! It has turned much cooler this weekend and we even had a brief moment of snow yesterday. I have been making slow progress on my Brinton Hall quilt while hubby and I have watched TV.

Here is a very bad photo of a photo  of the original in Quiltmania magazine.

This came out back in May. Part One consisted of the center with the hexies and appeared in Issue 107. Even though I am no where close to being ready, I have been waiting for Part Two in Issue 108. Last week, I received Issue 109. Hmmmmm……I contacted the publisher and they agreed to extend my subscription but said they could not send Issue 108. I was really bummed at first. I know I could get a copy of this from a friend who is much farther along than I am! But I have decided to use this as a design opportunity. I honestly would not have done those clamshells anyway! I’m not sure where this quilt will take me and that is rather exciting. So many possibilities!

I will be taking this with me this week so I need to get some more hexies prepared to take. I’m looking forward to digging into my scraps for this.

I’ve also been looking through this book.


It is making me want to load up some more practice fabric to play! She has some great design ideas here. One thing that bothers me, she doesn’t clearly indicate starting and stopping points. I find that a bit frustrating.

Have a wonderful day!

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday

    Ai did not realize that this project was so big! It should keep you busy sewing for quite a while! Looking good!

    Bummer that you didn’t receive Issue No. 108, but what an awesome design opportunity this will be for you … I can’t wait to see what you going to do with your toile hexies.

  4. Very exciting opportunity to create your own version! Look forward to seeing what you do next!

    You will have lots of fun doing your own thing on this project. I have seen several versions using the same center idea and then it’s a free for all–haha! Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    I love your attitude of thinking of the missing edition as a design opportunity rather than a problem. I am sure that way, when you do complete your design it will really feel like *yours*. Lovely work!

    Great attitude you have! I did not realize this was a sew along you were making. Love it… but I’m sure you will put a great spin on that missing magazine.

    That quilt is going to be quite impressive. I look forward to seeing how you improvise the design.

  9. I’m not ready for snow. We’ve supposed to have flurries tomorrow. Boo hoo, it’s still October. Sorry to hear about your missing issue.
