Hand Pieced Kite, Bags and Hexies

Thursday night girls were treated to some lovely show and tell and thanks to Lorraine and her pics we can also enjoy the goodies.

Jenny C. brought along her beautiful 'Kite' shaped scrappy quilt.  This gorgeous quilt was hand paper pieced and hand quilted - mostly at Rugby matches and travelling whilst Jenny was watching her son play.  There is a possibility of a workshop in the future to show us all the technique.

A closer view of those beautiful fabrics and neat  points.

Jenny was also working on her new bag made out of those gorgeous tiny hexagons!  Her bag is made of Kaffe Fasset fabrics, and here it is laid out on the bag pattern. 

Jane was also working on her bag of the tiny hexagons - here she is with her one made in Japanese fabrics.

Elaine has made a great bag using a left over 'golf lady' panel, and she is taking it off to golf on Friday for a raffle.

Debbie loved the tutorial Janet showed us on how to make the needle holders, that she made this beautiful one for Jane for her Birthday.  Debbie added lovely pearls and beautiful lace and embroidery work.  Very pretty.

Following the tutorial given by Jenny C. some months ago on how to make the great little patchwork bags - whenever our group gets together we see them popping up on the tables with our notions inside - they are so sweet, and every one is different!
Thank you for sharing the Thursday night meeting with us Lorraine.

lovely work yet again Andrea! Kites are perfect, yet I cant see myself doing these by hand..... haven't got that talented yet, and if I did, I would never get it finished!!!! Bubby hexies are soooo cute and Debbie's needleholder is gorgeous too....I bet Jane will be ecstatic!
Have a wonderful weekend....I'm off to do some catchup blocks!!!!!
Even with holidays, I'm far far behind!!! LOL

Is there any chance you'll post a tutorial about how to make those thread holders? I think it's an adorable gift.

You all are slightly crazy, though I mean it in the nicest way! Those little hexies are unbelievable!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like
yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Hey there! I was curious to know if setting up a site such your own: http://www. is hard to do
for unskilled people? I've been hoping to develop my own blog for a while now but have been turned off mainly because I've always assumed it
demanded tons of work. What do you think? Thanks alot :)

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Superb Blog!

Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!
