I Spy a Giant Hexie

Still grinding along on my swap blocks over here.. Friekishly Monsterous Tooth Fairy Pillow was a fun diversion for a late night of crazy improv sewing, but then it was back to my Taking Names swap blocks.

Here are some of my own, some that I made and some that I received..

The most recent set that I finished up used orange for the background and she requested shades of grey for her blocks.

Two more sets left to make.  And about a week left before the deadline, so that should be just enough time to get them done and all mailed out.  (They are not a surprise so it's okay to share pics.) Can't wait to get some more of mine in the mail, too!

Here are the ones I have finished so far.  It's so much fun to see how different they look in different colors.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of the quilts when they are done!

The RD&M quilt top is starting to creep into my thoughts, too.. Might have to start on quilting it soon..  I'm starting to miss it. ;) I just need to figure out what I'm going to use for the back and how to quilt it.

Any suggestions as to what color to put on the back?

Happy Monday!

Perfect pattern for that fabric! I have some fat quarters of the umbrellas in my stash. They are so cute!

All the swap blocks are just fabulous..Hard to pick a favorite..
Maybe you could use a tone on tone green for backing...

Those are wonderful in all of the different colors.

Hmmmm....I think you could use pink or green or red! Or white! Or yellow! So many options! I like your "They are not a surprise" comment....ha ha ha!

I like the 'hexie' look of the blocks.

The blocks are turning out great! I am curious, what colors did you say to use? Did you send the aqua color to everyone and then they add their own fabrics?
