using some of my home dec fabric to make some totes too.  Those should go over well at the family reunion raffle next year!  

You are right, those home deco fabrics make great bags, and never too early to get ready for the next reunion!!

thin fabric,

string block foundations, just another use for thin fabric!

Yeah, but I already have more muslin and other stuff I can use for that - more than I can use in a lifetime!  haha

Yeah, but I don't! (at least not that I want to use!)  besides, the thinner the better for foundation, otherwise I think it makes the quilt too heavy!

Found some of your eyeballs today, going to be great for monsters!!

It is growing very nicely.

I really love how this is coming along. I actually brought my hexi cardboard pieces as I have a big scrap bin in New Mexico where I am but I have not done zip yet. I did finish the shorts that I brought to finish and got the hand hemmed and put in the closure and wore them out yesterday. 

I do plan to begin a hexi project with english paper piecing for taking along and I love your pattern but in a different color way.

I'm not using her fabric, of course, but I am more-or-less following her color shade suggestions.  Except when I don't.  LOL!

I'm sticking to my turquoise scrap pile and want to use what I have, which means that I don't always have (especially) the lights when she uses them.  One of the outer medallions is going to be color-reversed from what she did.   I'm not entirely convinced there will be enough of a contrast when I put the colors of the medallion against the dark outer border, so I'll make a test run first before committing to the entire thing.

I like both fabrics but there may not be enough contrast to look good.  If it doesn't work out, I'm gonna need to put on my thinking cap.
