I've been working on sewing the little 1/2" border hexagons around each of the blocks that I'd completed in my earlier post.  It's quite therapeutic- not hard to sew, just lots of it. And lots, and lots!  Who knew there were so many edges on a hexagon!  LOL. 
I'll be glad when this centre is finished so I can move on to the coffin borders.  I've started cutting them out, but haven't jumped to that yet. 
This quilt will come together quite quickly once this and the pieced border is finished, Yayy.
I ordered some templates for fussy cutting 1/2" hexagons and 1 1/4" diamonds from Kim Bradley at
Kim Bradley Creations
They're the cutist little things.  I was telling my DH about my gorgeous new little templates when his eyes lit up.  He loves my yellow quilting rulers, and I've been looking for a small one that is metric for him to use in his shed.  Well, turns out that Kim Bradley's DH will make templates to order.  A quick email and "Bobs your uncle", yellow rulers on their way here.  Dave did a wonderful job on the rulers and was extremely obliging.   I'm the best thing since sliced bread according to my DH.

Oh, and we welcomed a new member of the family 2 weeks ago.  She's gorgeous, and fitting in very well.
Daisy is about 18 months old, and a bit of a mixture of Jack Russell terrier, Pug, and a bit of Dachshund I think.  Very friendly and best of all- toilet trained all ready.

    Welcome Daisy! Jindi sends tail wags...

  3. Wow, is all I can say about those teeny hexies! It's great to have those acrylic templates available to us, isn't it? They're just one of the little things that make quilting even more enjoyable, though you're just a glutton for punishment to make all those little pieces! I love how you could share the quilty love with your DH!
