rhoda, part deux

i’ve finally found the inspiration for another rhoda quilt block.  i’ve been wanting to try a hexagon quilt, possibly for cooper‘s next bed quilt, and found camille’s thimble blossoms site with super instructions.  as usual, i modified them – i did everything by machine, whereas she hand-sews everything (my own personal hell).  and aside from one little pucker, i’m pleased with the results.

here’s what i started with, before trimming it down to a 12″ square…

it pained me to cut off all the excess hexagons – not because it was so much work, but because you don’t get the full hexagon-beehive effect when it’s cut down to size…

the good news is, i don’t think this will be my last hexagon project.  i really liked the challenge!!!

new home established

some friends of ours from church had us over to dinner in their gorgeous new home a few weeks ago, and around the time dessert was being served, we found out it was our gracious hostess’s birthday!!!  sneaky little april…  so during the following week, i came up with this idea for a belated birthday gift. i really hope that it’ll hold a special place, marking the start of many wonderful memories in their new home.

to rhoda, with love

i have a dear sweet friend named rhoda who is a missionary in thailand.  she is beautiful, generous, and one of the top 10 funnest people i know.  inspired by my own personal rock stars, three friends and i are making her a friendship quilt.  we’re each creating four unique quilt blocks, putting them all together to make a quilt, and sending it to her with love.  so far i’ve made two of my four… (RHODA! COVER YOUR EYES!)

numero uno:

numero dos:

our deadline is in about a week, so i hope to post pics of my other blocks soon.  and if i’m lucky and the stars line up just right, i might have that tshirt quilt front done by the weekend… cross your fingers!!!!!!

xo, jess
