When Using Hexagon Freezer Paper

This picture shows how I place the hexagon freezer paper shapes and iron them onto the back of the fabric before cutting them apart.

There is about half an inch between each freezer paper piece.  If you place them in this honeycomb configuration, when you cut them apart, you will get a one fourth inch seam allowance all around the hexagon and not waste any fabric.

Party Time!

It's party time!

My daughter invited her new friends over for "Taco Tuesday" dinner and card party last night.

My husband's niece also was invited. My husband has several nieces since he has several siblings.  But he hadn't seen this one for a long time so he was specially delighted.

After we had dinner, we set out to play canasta.  Does anyone remember canasta?

We had so much fun! Lots of laugbter, giggling and guffawing!!

Unfortunately no quilting in sight!

To Quilt or Not To Quilt?

That is the Question!

To be inside working on my project and my favorite pastime . . . or be outside with the most beautiful grandchild!!

I am in Santa Clarita with my daughter and baby sitting while she starts and prepares dinner for a dinner party.
