Maniac Monday 3~Hexies and a Schnibbles

I am feeling better and feel like getting back to the real world. I hope it lasts. On my last blood work my liver functions had come back down. The doctor feels that with taking this new medication that my liver is going to run at a "new" normal. So we are just going to stay were we are on meds and see how long this good ride lasts. I have been doing some sewing but mostly I am just enjoying time with my oldest daughter while she is home from collage. She has decided to stay home this next semester and do her classes on line so I am hoping that I can get back to my sewing room on a more regular bases now that she will be busy with school work. HA HA

These are the flowers I got from my partner for March. They are so pretty. She also sent  a cool tiny little hexie key fob. It is perfect.You can see how tiny it is.

I have been working on one of my Schnibble quilts. My daughter had made a back for one of her quilts, well a wall hanging with no batting, and when she put them together you could see the print from the front. So I took that back, matched it to a Schnibble and started quilting it. I ran out of thread so I had to stop but now I have what I need and I can finish it today.

NTT~Ocean Quilt

Kelly over at My Quilt Infatuation is linking up again. I have so many UFO's like most of us do. What am I going to do...create another quilt!! I wanted a new quilt for my bed that reflexes something that both my husband and I like. We both love the ocean. He loves blue, I love green. I found a book at Joann's that was just what I was looking for. I have been busy sewing the pieces and got to a point where I felt like I need to add more craziness to the piecing. Why not add a UFO so that I can sew both at the same time. I added my Double Delight (a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt). In the picture you can see the teal pieces for the Ocean Quilt and the purple and orange for the Double Delight.

 Here I have blue and teal pieces for the Ocean Quilt with yellow and white pieces for my Double Delight.

As I was working on the lay out for the Ocean Quilt my daughter thought it would be fun to be a dork but I GOT HER!!! She told me to delete it. I did one better I am bogging about it. HA HA!

Here is my Ocean Quilt laid out. it goes from brown which is the sand to green for seaweed to teal and blue for the ocean and sky to grey for the clouds. I am sewing the rows together now. I can't wait until it is done. I LOVE IT!! 

As for the Double Delight, I have all the pieces sewn now. I just need to trim about 2/3 of them. Then I can start making blocks. I got more of it done than if I had just worked on only one quilt.

WiP Wednesday~Rainbow Trip Around the World

It is Wednesday again!! I have worked on this quilt a couple of time. I LOVE IT!! This is a traditional Trip Around the World Quilt. It is going to be a huge quilt when it is finished. 

Here are all of the rows together, now I just need to sew them. 

Here is a closer look.

For Saturday Sampler I am starting a new BOM. I have seen this quilt a few times in a few shops and I am so excited to do this one. 

Don't forget to hope over to to Freshly Pieced to check out all of the other cool projects.
