June Get Your Hex On

I posted off Chelsie's June block this lunch time, on the way to my allotment.  The weather was hot, so the digging was hard going. At least I remembered to take a cold drink with me. My tomatoes and peppers are doing really well, I must try and get a photo tomorrow.
Back to the June block, Chelsie wanted low volume octagons with white squares.  I discovered I don't have much in low volume, perhaps I need to stock up!!!
These were interesting to join and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.  
Now it's posted I can read my new book,  Quilting On the Go, by Jessica Alexandrakis.
I think I might start with the pretty little pincushion.


  1. Love love love the idea of low volume hexies. Yours are beyond fabulous.

  2. You have octagons (8 sided)... hexies are 6 sided therefore hexagons. I'd guess yours should be called octies. This concludes the geometry class for today. LOL

  3. I love your octagons with the little white square, gorgeous EPP

  4. Quilting on the go is something I really need to get on - really cute progress you have.

  5. Love, love, LOVE the octagons! Maybe I will graduate to hexies and octs as I get more experience of quilting - so many fab things to learn!

    I planted my tommies out tonight in the courtyard garden - have given up putting them (outside) at the allotment as they get smacked by blight. You remind me that I should take pics & update the blog! *sigh - so much fun to be had, so little time!

  6. I looked up that book and it has some nice projects in it. Some of the quilts are gorgeous. I haven't worked with hexies or octies yet, but they may be in my future. Yours look cute, especially with that little shot of color.

  7. It looks great! I'm busily fixing mine this morning. but needed a break to catch up on blog reading. :) I'm finding the little squares challenging.
