Morris Hexathon......Blocks 18, 19, 20, 21

I'm am finally up to date with the Morris Hexathon. Someone asked in a comment last post if these were hand sewn.

Yes. Every teeny tiny stitch.

I love to hand sew. That's what attracted me to the Hexathon. Next I'm going to try my hand at applique as I haven't really done at lot in the past.

It wasn't the best day to take pictures as it's raining buckets...not literally of course:)

18. Parquetry


19. Woodford Green

I was a bit worried about doing curves but in actual fact they were very easy to do.

20. Walthamstow
I didn't notice the thread in the middle until now...oh well


21. Queen Square

I didn't follow the original sample but did my own thing as I really don't have very many colours left to choose from...24 diamonds and 6 triangles.
I'm starting to run out of fabric so the next five blocks will be a challenge to eke out of what is left.

Linking today with....Books and Quilts

 and, Hibiscus Stitches.....


Take care:)

Oh No19 is beautiful! And yes indeed it would be something amazing to see buckets falling from the sky, ha ha!

these are another wonderful assortment. I like the idea of hand piecing them. i'm not all that good at machine sewing set in seams.

Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.
