Hexie update and more

Wow, I can't believe it has been a week since I posted, but as you can see I'm still working away on my hexie medallion quilt.  The applique center is all finished and I am happy with my first foray into Broderie Perse.

Here are more hexagons sewn together. Still a few more to go but I have so many hexie flowers sewn together and cut out that I'm thinking that I may have to use them in a border too.


 For 3 days last week my sister-in-law and brother-in-law from Texas were here for a visit. She is also a quilter so we had fun shopping the local quilt stores and making these cute little butterflies for their new baby grandchild who is due to be born any time now.  It is to be a girl and we had fun making these to hang in her room.  Since I have no little girls in my life, I sent the pattern home with her and can't remember the pattern name.
I was delighted with this Dutch fabric that my SIL brought for me.  She lives near the quilt store "Happiness is Quilting" in McKinney, TX which, I believe, is the only American shop that carries this fabric.  I'm thinking that I need to order the panel now that I have seen this in person. 
Happy Stitching to all.

Your medallion is fabulous!! Broderie is addictive, isn't it? And hexies, too. I'm doing the Dutch Treat quilt from Happyness, with hexies and that panel and border. You really NEED the panel, too. ;)
