A great weekend of sewing for me!

hi everyone, as the name for this post says it all, I have had a very productive weekend, I am happy to say that 3d hexi cubed is now a quilt sandwich , as of Friday night I had two blocks still to complete and did them on Saturday, then started to put them all  together ,, It was the first time that I have sewn Y seams and I was a little worried that I would not be able to do them, but I did read a few blogs on how to do them and watched a you tube also, and by dinner time tonight I now have the top done and is basted and ready to quilt,! it is not perfect but I am happy with how it has gone so far , you can see that as I worked on each block , my piecing got much better, and the use of spray starch helped a lot too here is a link with some pictures of how it has progressed hexi cubed photos. It is in a slideshow on google plus , I have been having problems uploading pics, and this is the only way I can get some photos  posted here, hope this works,, there are also pics of my hand sewn hexis project it is also ready to be quilted, so I have both to do, 3d cubed is first to do,,
well it is time to get ready for another work week, happy sewing to all

On my Design wall,, wip

Happy national quilting day!
yes I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything, but life has been a bit busy lately and there have not been enough hours in the day,( work eat sleep, repeat)
But I have managed to get some work done.
The baby quilt for a person at work is done, all that I need to do is get the babies name for the label and I have not been able to get it, the person has been off of work (sick ) so until he returns to work is has to wait;

The hexagon quilt project is in the quilt sandwich stage including being basted , but I have not had the time to quilt it yet
Three D hexi is coming along I have 9 blocks done , just 6 more to go and then the fun begins, putting them together! I have not had much practice with Y seams so this should be interesting.
The rest of my sewing has been paid work.. lots of coat zippers , been a long winter and it is taking its toll on not just people but the clothing as well, I cant wait till the warmer weather comes,, seems like it will never happen, but hopefully soon it will
happy sewing to all.... sorry no pics, blogger wont load images , but I will try again later to post them
