I have previously shown y'all the hexie 2016-2019 Forever Project that I finished just the other night.
What I didn't mention was that last year I indulged a bee in my bonnet about starting a Hawaiian Applique in batiks Forever Project. :-) I have a bunch of Hawaiian Applique patterns, which I enlarged to fit onto a 12" block. I used my Scan-n-Cut to cut the template for me so I could trace the full size design onto my batik. (I don't use my Scan-n-Cut to actually cut the fabric, which it can do, because there's just a whole bunch of prep and post work that needs to be done, which isn't worth it to me for needleturn applique pieces.)
I had appliqued about half of one Hawaiian design before I realized it was really foolish to have TWO Forever Projects going simultaneously, so I tucked the Hawaiian Applique away. I have now returned to it and am pleased to say that I have finished that first block. :-)
Right now, I have 12 Hawaiian Applique designs. I don't know if I'll stay with just 12 blocks or if I will make more. I have no idea how I'm going to arrange these 12" blocks but I can certainly kick that can way down the street. :-)
Here is the first one completed:
You are amazingly talented and patient. I'm afraid these old eyes and hands will have to leave that kind of work to you.
Another beautiful forever project!

I am keeping my current forever project a bit under wraps for now. It is a just for fun project for my sewing room I think you guys will like.
Looking forward to seeing you project. You put out the carrot. Now I'm wondering what it is.
I like your bag. Great idea. My hexies are languishing in a drawer.
Nice! Did you applique the whole thing to the blue background? By hand?
I can see another beautiful forever project in the works. You are amazing.
I have mostly been cutting up scraps into more usable units. I did manage to put together one more charity quilt. Another is waiting for quilting. Here is the completed one. It was a Debbie Mumm book panel. I just cut it up for a quilt. Story can still be read.
I cut strips of the ecru background, put the strips behind the hexies, then appliqued the hexies to the strips. That's the first border.
Then I cut strips of the blue, put those strips ON TOP of the ecru and needleturned applique the blue onto the ecru.
But everything is hand-stitched at this point. Eventually, it will get machine quilted. I also attach the binding to the edges, both sides, by machine. HMMMMM ..... **unless** I decide to scallop the edges of the blue (that might be a nice touch?) .. in that case, I'll do the final binding stitching by hand.
