Eighteen months ago, I visited Yellow Creek Quilt Designs on a day trip with some friends.
You can read about it here.
I purchased their "Stars in the Garden" half inch hexie kit and couldn't wait to get started!
Before I knew it, my first star was finished!
I was hooked!
I made progress and enjoyed each step, but sometimes I would put it down and would forget about it for a few months.
Before I knew it all the full stars were completed and I only had partial pieces left...
When Mom was headed to the hospital, I had the quick thought to grab this project bag to bring with me. Mom and I did some color planning as to piece placement while there.
And now the big reveal!
"Stars for the Garden" is complete!
I don't consider it finished until it is in the frame and hanging on my wall lol ;)
Oh Jan! I will be contacting you soon...
If you are interested in this pattern/kit, you can find their website here and their Facebook page here.
It's funny, as I started closing in on this project, my mind started wandering to my next English Paper Piecing project. That will be in my next post.
I never do this, but I had to share the back - it really intrigued me.
Since the half inch hexies are so small the fabric fully wraps around. I thought that it was pretty.
A close up of the back.
I have to share some happy news!
Mom is done with chemo! We are now gearing up for the next step - radiation.
I think that the hardest part is behind her.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support!
They are greatly appreciated!
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
