Vortexing along...


I am slowly working away on my quilt vortex project.  Sewing, trimming, more sewing, more trimming. 

 
After trimming, I sort the pieces into piles of approximately the same size and shape and then I start sewing them together.  It is fun to revisit scraps from projects of the past.  The fabric with the hexagons is a scrap leftover from my daughter's university quilt. I made the quilt for her when she started university.  She graduated a couple of weeks ago and is now gainfully employed.  Later this year, she and I are going to pick out fabric and a pattern for a new quilt for her apartment as a graduation gift.  The purple batik scraps are from my purple "Yellow Brick Road" quilt. I am hoping for a good sized lap quilt at the end of this process.
 
Stay tuned for more progress reports, maybe later this week.
