Fun in my fabric world....

Nothing lazy about it...

Little hexagons are so much fun...I see fussy cutting opportunities in a myriad of fabrics...it drives my DD nuts!
Lazy Susan, a pattern by Wendy Williams purchased from MO at the craft show has given me more reason to play with these little cuties!
But I am starting to assemble the blocks now and despite careful pinning & slow sewing I was not overly happy with inserting the circles by machine....so I tried hand piecing, which was much better, but think I might opt for needleturn onto the square instead. What do you think?
 I have completed this months quota of the circle game too...this month was pretty simple...I am a little anxious about what next month might bring!
Block 6...I like the simplicity of pattern in this one!
One sleep to go!!!

I'm much more of a needleturn onto the square kinda girl. I love both of these quilts, so fun and appliquing hexies onto circles is inspired!

Fussy cutting adds a whole other level doesn't it. Even one fabric gives many different patterns.

Do you use an iron-on for your circles?
