Civil war building blocks... er hexagons

I have finished the binding on the Kaffe and Liberty quilt - but I need someone to hold it for a good photo.
I can show you a photo of the latest civil war hexagons I have been working on...

Today is "poem in your pocket" day at work. We carry a poem around and share them with each other. I have chosen 2 poems. "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost (1928) and "Warning!" by Jenny Joseph (1932). Hard times seem to have been good for poetry - one needed something to dream about I guess.

I am dreaming of finishing the Chicken Soup quilt ready to start a fungly quilt... (well, that's all I'm going to tell you anyway!!)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yes, summer is divine here, although hot. Norms are in the 90's and it's very dry.

I took a look at your fungly quilt. What a great idea! I have a bunch of pieces that would work great for that! I might try a leader/ender project with it.

You asked about the money I find. I run four or five times a week and the coins are found on the side of the street or in parking lots. This morning my run was going great until I "kissed the sidewalk", the first time that has happened in four years. Will be posting on it as soon as all the scrapes and bruises are in full color!

Love your quilts.

Where do you work that you have a poem in your pocket day? How fabulous - another reason to bemoan not being able to work (at the moment - let's be unrealistically optimistic here, lol!).
Loverly quilts - especially the Log Cabin, how wide (narrow) are those strips?

Thanks for visiting my blog! I am a teacher - it was literacy week, that's why we exchanged poems.

The log cabin strips are 1/2 inch finished, so I cut them 1 inch wide. Have fun!
