Back to regularly scheduled crafting

So I am still without my camera cord. Luckily, my mom found it at her house and she'll be sending it to me. I feel so naked without it. Of course I was missing blogging and pictures, so I ran off to Rite-Aid and made a CD of my pictures. Now how obsessive is that?!?!

On our trip to NY, I started another hexagon quilt. I intended to just use red and blues, but some white sneaked in there, so now I have a red, white, & blue quilt.
Which is fine. John and I were married July 3rd, so it'll look nice in our room. Maybe I'll finish it by the 4th. We'll see.
This is a very addictive method. Almost as addictive as paper piecing has become. I ordered Kingpod's last mailoder and it had several different paper piecing papers. I've made these three blocks so far, and the plan is to make a few more for a mini quilt.
I used some of my vintagey fabric that I bought on eBay awhile ago. I loved them so much I was afraid to cut them up. But, these mini quilts are perfect because you only have to use a tiny bit of fabric. So much for stashbusting! I'm sure there will be some more quilting in the next few posts. Let's just say I'm a "little" obsessed with it right now. We'll see how long that lasts!

Oh what pretty fabrics!

I think it is hilarious that you couldn't wait for your camera cable! :) They actually make memory card readers that you can plug into your computer through a usb port. Maybe you need one? (That way you could take your cord with you, but still be okay if you forgot it somewhere:)

I have to say I am obsessed with making quilts right now too. One for each of the kiddos is in order! But what you are doing, the little hexagons, is crazy and I can't wait to see the final product!

OK, now I'm going to have to step up my hexagon quilting.
The red, white and blue is perfect for this time of the year. How big are your hexagons? They look tiny.
