Swoon! More Hexies!

I've been unable to show you a picture of a baby quilt I had been working on because I didn't want my sister to know about it because it was for her my nephew. 
I'm excited to finally be able to share with you his quilt and of course a couple pictures of him too because he is nothing less than precious, handsome, sweet, and adorable! 

This is Grayson.
Isn't he precious?!! 
He has the darkest soft black hair that would make you grit your teeth as you rub your hands through it.
I'm gritting my just thinking about it-can't get enough of him! I miss him like crazy!
These pictures are from last Friday when he was born.
(Wow! I can't believe he's already a week old!)
 Can you tell I am one proud aunt?! 
I gave him as much cuddles and love as I could for the short time I saw him.
hate that my sister lives 3 hours away and I don't get to see him as often as I'd like.

As for the quilt I made Grayson...
I made a simple strip quilt and decided to go with colors that are in his nursury. 
Gray, yellow, and red.
For fun I added the 'G' to the corner to make it a little extra special. 
I hope he likes it!! 

With that quilt done, I've started another. 
You know how I'm liking obsessed with hexagons?
I was teaching my friend how to hand-sew hexagons and planned to just make a small hexagon flower..
But it turned into this.

 I'm still trying to decide whether I want to use it as a quilt block or turn it into a pillow.
So for now, I'm just going to hang it above my sewing table and just stare at it.
I started this on Monday and just now finished. It's such a slow process but SO worth it I think.

Am I the only one who loves to just stare at hand-sewn hexagons?
If not, here is some eye candy...


Do I have you hooked?


  1. It looks great! I am just about finished with mine. I think I am going to make mine into a pillow and hand quilt it. :)
