Catching up with Mrs Billings

Yesterday was a fun stitching day with Claire, Shay, Loz, Lorraine and Kay. They're such a fun bunch of ladies and there is always a lot of chatter and laughter - thank you for hosting us Claire!

I decided to take Mrs Billings along to work on - after seeing Victoria's progress on Thursday with her Mrs B's hexagons, I thought I'd like to get some done of my own. I didn't make up many, but I was motivated to work on it some more today, despite other projects that really need attention (shhh, don't tell the Quilt Police!).

Anne of Green Gables was on TV today, so while I watched, I finished off the red hexie unit on the right, made up the hexie unit on the left. I also cut out a most of the hexagons at the top of the picture, and also the little triangles you see there. Believe it or not, there are over 100 of them!

The hexagon units are for the final border of the quilt, and while I'm nowhere near ready to use them, I thought it was a great idea of Victoria's to piece them in stolen moments so they're all ready at the end.

Well, that's been my day so far. I'm going to get busy using the little triangles to piece the next border - it'll be a lot of mindless chain piecing. And tomorrow I'm going to finish up fusing the applique blocks I shared a sneaky peek of. There are 8 of them - so I see a LOT of blanket stitch in my future.

I am so tempted to order Mrs. Billings but I am working on so many other things and this would take a lot of my time! I love watching the progress of yours

It's adorable how you have planned and made the pink hexies.

You will always be my Oreo buddy Tazz. Saturday was a blast.

I have 6 more hexie flowers to go and Im done...just saying.

It looks like it's coming along nicely. English paper piecing is my new addiction. Do you mind telling me what brand your templates are?

Your quilt is coming along beautifully and time with friends is always wonderful. I ADORE Anne of Green Gables!
