Slow Stitching Sunday 9/29/13 & Design Wall Monday 9/30/13

Since August I have been working on scrappy English Paper Pieced hexagon stars and snowflakes for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I finished my second star a few days ago, which brings me up to two stars and three snowflakes. Now I am waiting to find out what color will be chosen for October.

After finishing the hexie star, I was trying to come up with another hand-stitching project to keep me going. I pulled out a hexie project that was started in April, 2012 for the Color Palette Challenge at Patchwork Times. Each month Judy posted a picture to be used as inspiration for a project, and this is the photo that was my starting point.

Yes, that is a photo of a moldy custard pie. Disgusting, sure, but a great grouping of colors! I drew out a design, pulled fabrics, and started stitching, but didn't get far before it was pushed aside for other projects. It has been sitting in a box, patiently waiting for me to pull it out again. I have the center portion together, and two of the six side sections nearly complete.

I am linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday over at Kathy's Quilts. Here's to taking it slow on Sunday! I am also linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.

  1. Such fun you are having with the hexies! Just love your projects! Thanks for linking up!

  2. You did a great job of pulling fabrics for the color challenge. Can't wait to see where you go with it.

  3. Beautiful colors from such a "yucky" picture. Looking forward to seeing this one come together. Since she picked black for this month's rainbow scrap challenge you could finish this UFO and count that.
