More “Quilt-lets”

Those of you following know that I am making Katja Marek’s 2016 English Paper Piecing Project, which uses fractured hexagons from her book THE NEW HEXAGON.

Here are a few more completed “quilt-lets,” which will eventually be sewn together into a quilt.

I’ve heard two “fox got the hens” stories in the past few days.  Yep.  Fox is raising babies now.

Hedgehogs are on a lot of current quilting fabric.
