Bliss is in the DONE column - so happy! I really love this quilt! As you may remember, I used fabrics that represent things I love. There are dachshunds, bicycles, flowers, eyeglasses, and lots of flowers. Lots of flowers!

I think the black and white border is a nice ending point to hold in the riot of color.

And here you can see the backing (which is also the binding). Another good fabric choice, I think. (And I already had it in my stash!)

As usual, you can find this pattern here on the blog (FREE!) up at the top under the Hexie Love tab.

I figured out what was wrong with this painting yesterday and fixed it. Just like quilting, sometimes it's best to let something sit overnight; everything looks clearer after being away from it for several hours. This is Scout, Daughter 1's dog.

And as for my big lug, he was quite relaxed while I was painting and sewing...zzzzz...

I finished pressing ALL the points for the dresdens! Yippee!

Today is En Provence, and I'll have to admit that I'm really tired of this quilt! But I will trudge away. Seems like I have to make one more sashing unit and then stitch the two sides together. Then on to the borders. I can do it!

Yesterday I spent the entire morning going back and forth between painting and sewing and it worked very well for me. I like for the painting to dry in between layers of paint. So back and forth it is. Today will be no different...under my brush today is a sweet kitty cat...

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
