Idle hands

Idle hands make me nervous! I have been putting a few of these together while I am designing the next batch of quilts. I don't have any applique ready to go and I cannot stand it when I have nothing in my hands! Know what I mean? Looks like I still need to get an iron out before I take pics for you! I figure you have all seen creases in fabric before, can identify what they are and probably have some of your own just like this!

Beautiful! What fabrics do you use? I totally get what you mean by idle hands! My husband thinks I can't sit still, that I always have to be doing something! ;)

Barbara, I just love your hexies! I am doing a Grandmother's Flower Garden in 30's fabrics. I am loving it, so I know what you mean by idle hands. You just have to keep them busy.

I love these so much! Your fabrics are beautiful.

Hexigons are another thing I want to learn how to do.

I stopped by your booth at HMQS but you weren't there =0(

I am using scraps, mostly Lecien with others mixed in.

Oh, look at those. I swore I'd never do any flower garden blocks, but now, hmmm, you may have changed my mind!!!

There's nothing like English paper piecing for idle hands! Did I mention I'm an epp addict?!? Missed seeing you in Pittsburgh for our annual photo, but there's always next year!

These are just beautiful, I have never made any of these. Do you use plastic templates or paper ones?

Loraine said...

Your blocks are amazing! I've never seen a grandmother's flower garden in these colors. It will be wonderful when your done!

Idle hands definitely make me nervous as well!
