WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I was a slacker this week. Tuesday is my normal sewing day/day off but I had to work this week. I knew that Tuesday were one of the slower days at the office so I took some of my hand sewing with me. I needed to have something to show for myself on Wednesday. I got this one flower done and basted two more.

Hexies this week

There was a discussion on a Quilts of Valor group about if a person made one 12″ block a day at the end of the year they’d have made enough blocks to make 20 plus twin sized quilts depending on border and sashing arrangements. That got me thinking. I can’t commit to do anything for a year but I could commit for February. If I did one block a day for 25 days that would give me three days to put it together with sashings/borders and I’d have a finished top in a month.

I’m going to do it. I’m going to post my block of the day at our state Facebook page here. Feel free to follow along or sew along. It is a great way to quilt for others without making a huge time commitment each day.
