Pillow progress

My hexagon pillow is coming along nicely. I have completed eighteen flowers and sewn them all together. The next step is planning the partial flowers for the edges to square it up for a pillow top. I also have to decide how to quilt it and what color to use (most likely green since it's my favorite).

I've discovered that sewing while teaching Dominic math is wonderful. Our math time this past week was enjoyable instead of frustrating for me.  I find it difficult to be patient while he works through problems on his own because he is terribly slow (which is perfectly fine for his age - I struggle with being patient) but sewing gives me something to focus on as he works.  He's young and fluency will come with practice and time but until then I will need lots of EPP!

  1. Your pillow is lovely!


  2. Your hexies are great!!! That will make a wonderful pillow. I have a small hexie project going, but am just starting a 60 degree diamond project--similar to the quilt in your picture of your beautiful family. (Your kids are so cute!!!) Thank you for posting your progress--it is inspiring!
