Put your foot down #125

Put your foot down is a weekly linky party to share your fiber arts WIP’s and finishes, and hopefully make new friends along the way. Welcome, I invite you to stop in every Thursday and share your projects.

Hmm, let’s see. My sewing room is coming back together after much thought and moving furniture around. I’ve placed a couple orders for additional pieces, canceled said orders after realizing they wouldn’t work, and finally have found the right combo. The new additions are to be delivered black Friday. Will share after that.

Flower Patch SAL progress

Ok, so I need a new design wall too, looking for something that can moved around because my space is tight. Clue #5 was released last week and it was a repeat of block 2, I love how it is coming together. Working on clue #6 now. The great thing about this quilt is there are a couple of repeating quilt blocks and if you are following along you already have all the tools you need for block 6.

Block 6 in the works 🙂

December Island Batik

A little sewing in the evenings too. I’ve discovered my finger strength is better than I thought, much better than the strength of my eyes. The hexies were cut using the 2 1/2″ sides die from AccuQuilt.


The fabrics are from the spring 2021 Flutter Fly Collection designed by Kathy Engle for Island Batik. This is one of my favorite collections and the hexies were cut for another project that I never started. This was the perfect opportunity to use them. .

Next week

Due to next Thursday being Thanksgiving Day here in the USA there will not be a linky party on Thursday Nov. 25th. Instead, this linky will remain open until Nov 30th so feel free to come back and link up your projects until then. Happy Thanksgiving and be safe everyone.

  1. Hi Denise, I see that your SAL is coming along well. A couple of blocks that repeat is probably a good thing to you and the participants! I love your hexies. I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. For sure, they also make for a balanced design. Ohhh, the hexies. My fingers hurt from the tips all the way down to my wrists. Thank you, you already had your Thanksgiving or I would wish the same to you. Work for about an hour tomorrow morning and then I am off until Monday. Looking forward to that.

    1. Awe thank you. You will always be the hexie queen. Where they finish only time will tell as I can only stitch by hand a little more than 30 min at a time so progress is very slow.
