Monday Morning Star Count 2014/20

As I type this (late Sunday night, NY time), the 7 Sisters hexagon piece is almost done.
It probably needs about 30-45 more minutes of stitching, but I don't think I'll stay up and do it tonight.  Tomorrow maybe?

Still haven't made any decisions on what exactly will become of it, so once the last seams are sewn I think I'll let it sit for a while and work on something else.  We've got one heck of a road trip coming up later this week and it should be quite productive on the quilt-front.  Follow me on Instagram for up to the minute EPP progress, hehe.

Have you counted your stars this week?  New players are always welcome, there really aren't many rules to join our weekly linky party-- just stitch some EPP, take pictures, and show us what you've got!


  1. Wow! How beautiful! I just love watching the progress and seeing it all come together. I am surprised every time in the beauty of the finished project. You sure work fast :)

  2. That is lovely! Just like a puzzle. There is always a "wow" when it comes together!

  3. This is the greatest Seven Sisters ever!!!

  4. Great hexie quilt, love all the colours and neutrals in there.

  5. Fabulous quilt! Two thumbs up.

  6. Love how this looks! Every time I see an update about this project for you it makes me want to get my traditional EPP projects back out! Now I just need to DO it!

  7. Hi Jessica

    I absolutely love these colorful stars made from hexagons! Have you got the pattern anywhere?

    Thanks for your help

My Travel Quilt Story

**ETA-- Check out my completed Travel Quilt #3 here**

I don't know about you, but I check my blogger stats a couple times a day.  It's nice to see how readers find me, who has linked to me, and where they are.  In the last week though, there's been a gap, a hole.  I usually have at least a couple hits a week from readers in Japan, this week-- none.  Of course with such tragedy, I can't expect them to take time out (and use valuable electricity) to check in on my little ol' blog here, but still, the absence makes me worry about them even more.  I was thinking about how I can go back to  posting more about quilts but still satisfy my need to talk about Japan.. 

Victoria took this great photo of me at her retreat last weekend and I've wanted to write a post about it, and then it clicked, "Oh Yeah~" let's go back to the quilt that started me off on my EPP obsession..
Here we go.  Travel Quilt #1, aka "Ayane's Star" See, I was going to J…

Monday Morning Star Count, November 30, 2015

I have not even sewn one stitch this week.  I did manage to find my cutting table and mat, and it was nice to see them after what seemed like too long, but I didn't cut anything.  I didn't press anything.  I didn't do much other than ponder how I will organize my new space.

If you have stitched though, please tell us!

12 Hexies Blog Hop!!

Hexies!  Hexies!  Hexies!

What's not to love?  Even though I fell in love with EPP through 60 degree diamonds, once I started to hex seriously, I found that they're so soothing.  When basted to templates, they are perfectly contained little morsels of my favorite fabrics, portable, pleasing, playful..

Today is my day on the 12 Hexies Blog Hop and I've got a little tutorial for how to make a pin cushion with just 8 hexagons.  Though this is my tutorial, I can't take credit for coming up with the shape/pattern of the pin cushion.  I actually saw it on flickr ages ago, and in the comments of that pic, the poster referenced another blog post that she was inspired by.  Really folks, it's 8 hexies joined together.. there are only so many ways to do it.  But they go together so nicely and you can turn them into a really substantial pin cushion, so let's have a go at it--
First cut and baste your hexies.  I'm using 3 5/8" squares on 1 1/2" paper hexagon …
