I already did my baby quilt a couple months ago.  Smiley I do have one more pair of PJ's to finish for the 3 year old and then I'm hanging up my sewing machine for a while.

I have a finish!

And that is probably going to be my last one for the year...or even a couple years.  I have less than two months to go & I don't have the baby's nursery done.   Shocked  So I'd better get a move on so he has somewhere to sleep...

Finished my Hexies quilt!
14  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hexies Quilt on: July 29, 2014 01:34:41 PM
This is the quilt I made from squares I received through the QBS - Rd 5 swap.  There is a QBS - Rd 6 taking sign ups right now for anyone who might be interested btw.  Anyway...I asked for hexie blocks from an unusual color palette of chocolate brown, deep purple, magenta, lime green, and lemon yellow.  I received blocks from kbrison, carolmb, alwaysinmyroom, and Melladh.  Actually, alwaysinmyroom was nice enough to make me two sets since the white space was bigger than the others on her first set.

When I started putting it together, the only fabrics I could find that would draw it all together were mostly batiks lol.  I have no problem mixing batiks and non-batiks, so it turned into a pretty bright quilt. 

Here is a close up of one of the hexies:

I used alwaysinmyroom's first set of hexies on the back, and placed them off center.

Here is a close up:

I swear they are all straight, but I was trying to take pics by myself before it started raining.   Grin  The quilt is sized somewhere between a throw and a twin.  And I longarmed the whole thing with magenta squiggly lines.

I don't know if I'm putting this on the right board, so feel free to relo, Mods.  We are working on making 3.5 yo DS a "big boy room."  So to go along with that, I thought it would be nice to make some art to personalize it.  I have seen lots of these crayon art pictures with umbrellas on Pinterest, so I thought it would be fun to do one with DS's favorite animal, an elephant. 

I did the gluing on the crayons and the umbrella & elephant, and DS did the blow drying.  Wink

He was pretty excited when the crayons started melting.  Smiley Thanks for looking.

It depends on how bad it is.  I have a quilt I longarmed last month and didn't notice the tension was screwed up til I was nearly done.  It is REALLY bad on the back.  I'm going to have to sit down and rip all of it out and it makes me so angry every time I think about it...not to mention the extra $ I will have to pay to rent the longarm to redo it.  Angry   But it really looks awful and I know I couldn't live with it.  I have let smaller things go on other quilts though...piecing that doesn't quite match up or bits that pull a little from when I eased them.  The question is, will it bother YOU?  My other "gut check" is if my non sewing friends would notice.  If they would, I definitely fix it.

Your boyfriend sounds like my husband.  Cheesy And hey, if you'd like to send me some Japanese blocks, I won't complain. Wink  I don't think I'll get to that quilt before baby comes...I wish I'd thought to mail some magenta before I mailed last round.  No one should have to live in a country without magenta...

ha I swear we are all using this swap to fabric shop..."but honey, I don't have the right colors for my swap partners' quilt blocks..." ha

"Problem" with my boyfriend is I end up only justifying it for myself. I'll say "I need to buy fabric for the swap" and he'll say "ok": read "as long as I don't have to come I don't care". I'll say "I have a ton of fabric already, but not the right ones!" and he'll say "Yeah you keep telling yourself that." Roll Eyes

Carol, your theme block sounds really fun! I'll probably not end up in that group, and it'll be like when I read donniesgirl's "japanese" theme, and get all stuck on that, having to re-read my actual partner list over and over to get it into my head that I wasn't in that group Cheesy Not that I was disappointed, my brain just latched on to it and wouldn't let go!
"I haven't figured out anything to do for the japanese theme yet, I should really get that sorted"
"You're not in the japanese group"
"oh! Right! Uh.. well.. I haven't figured out anything for the japanese theme yet, I should really get that sorted..."

I'm here.   Cheesy  I will stalk when I can.  And yes, being pregnant in the summer in Texas is uncomfortable.  Three months or so to go!

Yes I believe you called them odd.   Grin

I think I posted the layout before - here it is quilted:

I used purple to quilt.  This is definitely the brightest quilt I've done so far lol.  I'll get the binding on after my dad visits.
