The Pigs in a Blanket quilt has been sent off to the MidAtlantic Quilt Festival, so now its time to do something besides the finishing touches on that quilt. I have been feeling a bit intimidated by the next step in the Stonefields quilt, so I decided to push forward on that.

As you can see from the photo, the instructions call for two simple flower sets from hexagons where the finished size of each hexagon is just a tad over 1/2 inch. The quilt instructions come with a set of those tiny paper hexagons neatly packaged in a plastic bag and taped to the instructions. Of course, Molly helped me by stepping on the bag and getting the bits of tape on her back paw. With much vigorous shaking, she not only got the bag off her foot, but also scattered the tiny paper pieces all over the floor.

I did fussy cut hexagons from novelty fabrics so I could feature tiny creatures. One set features pigs, parakeets and a rabbit. The Other has a bunny, sheep, a camel, an elephant and a clown.


  1. Oh that silly cat! I don't envy you the job of doing those hexagons, I wish you good luck. Not my favorite thing to do.

  2. Love that fussy cutting!
    And wasn't it thoughtful of Molly to help you open that bag. Yeah, thoughtful. That's it. Thoughtful.

  3. Goodness, I can't believe the size of the finished hexagons, you're a braver girl than I, but luckily you have a very able helper in Molly.

  4. whew, all caught up! I Heart Sheep. Tell Molly I am caught up, following the straight and narrow and there's no need whatsoever for her to come and correct anything over here. thanks
