thank you Lynne!  Actually I just did the sashing on two of them as they were gifts from a Secret Sister many years ago.  I did the center block and other friends finished the borders for me, Round Robin.  I love how they turned out also but more that someone will be able to use them.  I gave myself permission this year to make the tops, and then donate the tops and backings to the guild and they will finish them for me.  Less stress for me.

Hey there, folks! Putting my Moderator Hat on for a minute to ask a favor. Let's do our best please to keep THIS thread about sewing projects. I can understand how easy it is to get off topic (I'm really good at that myself) but let's have a more general chit chat thread for other stuff. I'll start it, and link it here in a moment. You can also always start new threads both on and off topic as you usually do, we just want to try to keep this one a little more focused on it's original intent of showcasing projects in progress. Thank you!!!

Hey, Misha! Thanks for starting this! 

Recently, I did a lot of minis for my walls at home in sewing room, and then have re-done borders for a quilt for a friend, which I am taking with me to give to my fav LAQ this next week. Can't post pix from here but I'll put links later. :) 

I love seeing what sewing/quilting projects people are working on!

I'm continuing to work on my Smooshed Hexies .. all hand-stitched.  I think I am approaching the end of the Tunnel with this project.  This last little bit is to put accent hexie flower units along the green hexie border.  It looked a little bare otherwise.

When you look at the photo below, you'll see 2 red arrows pointing to the accent flower units that I'm currently working on.  These hexies are 1" on a side.

Gorgeous!  Some of the ladies work on hexies at our quilt guild meetings and I've always admired them.  Maybe I could start with a small project to see if I can do that much hand sewing.  Might have to start searching for some little patterns.
