Cutting Wedges!

I cut ALL the wedges required for the Gardenvale quilt yesterday! This took almost all day. 560 wedges. 28 sets of 20. That's a LOT of wedges! The fabric makes it look like each wedge is pieced, but it's not. Now all I need to cut out for this quilt are the background squares. I'll save that for another day.

Last night I hand stitched on my new Curved Hexagon project. I ended up not changing out the gold bee fabric. I looked at the other fabrics and decided that this fabric was the best. I really want to keep this unit primarily gold. I do love the scallop the bee fabric is making around the center.

Dinner last night: roasted vegetables along with leftover turkey. Yum! These colors would make a pretty palette for a quilt, no?

We're expecting rain all day today. And that's a good thing - such a drought we've had! Today on my schedule is En Provence, which means I'll be making neutral four patches. Easy peasy! I already have lots of strips cut and ready to go.

Yesterday Hubby and I watched the first episode of Call the Midwife. I wasn't sure if it would be his cup of tea, but he seemed to enjoy it as much as I did.

Tomorrow I won't have time to blog. We have to get up and out super early to head to Montgomery. Hubby is having a bit of outpatient dermatological surgery. Nothing to worry about, but we'll be gone for a few hours. My UFO quilt is on the schedule for then, so I'll pack up a stack of basket blocks to take with me - I can appliqué the handles in the waiting room.

Hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. What! 60 wedges. 28 sets of 20. I keep forgetting how many pieces you need to complete a hex project! HA Lovely!

  2. Hope you got the rain. Know all about drought - we're heading into our 6th year. Love that curved hexi project.
