Bali hexagon quilt

Here is the finished quilt. I washed it to remove all of the graphite markings, and now it has that old look.

The backside.

This is the center of the half hexi quilt that I have been working on.

Added a green boarder around the hexis. The yellow Bali print around the hexi center is only attached to the hexi center and not the green boarder.

Idea for quilting the the green boarder area.

Half Hexi Placemats

One placemat done and three more to finish. I saw numerous blogs by quilters that are using half hexagons for their hexagon quilts. I like this idea since I don't have to hand sew the pieces.

The backside of the placemats. I plan on using this quilting design for when I make my half-hexi Bali quilt.

Japanese spring table runner

Years ago while living in Tokyo, I picked up materials to be used as table runners. The adorable bunny print was part of a little sack purse that I never used. So, I dismantled the purse to use in this table runner. The pretty white flowers with the pink background came from a table runner that lacked something. The white and green fabrics were leftovers from previous quilts. This little project not only produce me with a new table runner for Easter, but also gave me the opportunity to practice my free motion quilting.
