Maybe it's a little silly, but I've been learning how to use the square in a square method to get me out of some intricate small triangle piecing. Thanks for sharing with us! :)

cute little oufit for a sweet little cutie! i'm going to do hexies, too; i've pulled the fabrics and have the stuff for epp, so i'm ready to cut and proceed. english paper piecing is my new technique to do. wouldn't 'olive the ostrich' make a pretty little hexie quilt for a little girl?

Enjoy and have fun sewing! And, yes Rita, I think a hexie quilt would be amazing!!

I've been mastering a new skill here too. Using this fabulous set of tutorials from Penny of Sew Take a Hike (Hi Penny!), I've been working on quilting as I go. I tried a single block and then was hooked. But I have two quilt tops in progress, so I'm trying to limit the number of giant projects I have under way. So I figured a wall hanging would be just the thing. I'm nearly done and am hoping to finish it up and up on the wall before the end of the week. Here's a little sneak peek where I've used a bit of Olive the Ostrich fabric and some of her pretty heart selvage.

I do warn you though, the quilt as you go method is addictive!  :)

Have a great week!
