POTC Eye Candy





Aren't these the loveliest Patchwork of the Crosses blocks? I adore the colors. One of my good friends is making this quilt. She has made many blocks (I think more than 30) and is now working on the connector squares. Janet is an excellent long arm quilter and she cannot wait to get this quilt under her machine. I can't wait either!

Hubby's medical test went great Friday - thanks for your good wishes. (It will be my turn in about a month's time.) I've been a busy bee working on the next Hexie Love issue - it's full of fun projects, inspiration, and ideas. I have just two more articles to place into the software and then I'll spend a few days making it all pretty.

Yesterday I binge cooked. Have you ever done this? I went to the grocery store, came straight home, and cooked 3 different meals. In a couple of hours I had meals for us to eat this week and some to share with our daughters. And I didn't have to put any groceries away since I used them immediately. I did have a PILE of pots and pans to wash! But it was worth it. Now I don't have to worry daily about what we will eat in the evening.

Tomorrow I plan to get the April BOM stitched together - I need to get ahead... (it makes my life easier!)

  1. I have got so far as downloading the papers but want to make these after I've finished the New Hexagon Millefiori BOM that's currently taking off on FBook
    There's a 1500+ group on there well worth seeing
    Rosters are made up of 3". Hexi Blocks, each made up of EPP shapes

  2. Gorgeous POTCs - please compliment your friend for me. I do something like binge cooking all the time. Since there are only 2 of us at home, I still cook as for 6 as I use to when the 3 kids were home - mainly the entree. Yesterday, I roasted a whole chicken, so this week our suppers will feature that and side dishes I make each day. That way, it's a cinch to put together a meal each day. Looking forward to the next issue of Hexie Love.

  3. Beautiful! Makes me want to pull out my POTC blocks and fabrics and play with them! Hand piecing on three different quilts makes me fickle😊 Good going on your cooking! I love doing that as well!
