HeLP for Hexie-aholics!

 It's time for Help for Hexie-aholics!  Check out what folks are doing here.

Tiny Tumblers!  This is going to be a doll quilt.  The tumblers are 1", but even though they're teeny, they're very easy to do.  I started it a week ago, and have one more row of tumblers to do.

Yesterday I was at The City Quilter in Manhattan, and bought 3 fabrics for borders.  I'm not yet sure how I'll arrange them, but I kind of like the brown next to the tumblers.
I have a cute autumnal print for the back.  Not sure what I'll do for the binding. 

Nuts and Bolts, which is going to be a baby quilt for "Mister", due in late January.  I suspect it will be a lot larger than a baby quilt; I'll work until I think I'm done.  That's how I do things:  very casually.  It's part of the designing process for me, and I like to work this way.  I have no idea of backing or borders.

What's next?  Oh dear, I have a gazillion ideas!!!!!!!

Both are adorable projects - thanks so much for joining HeLP! I now have the papers for 1" and 3" tumblers -can't wait to try them esp. since I have seen your project. Have you seen the pattern at that uses both sizes together? I can send you the link if you like. I love the name nuts and bolts too - fits it perfect.

Oh those tumblers are addictive, aren't they? The nuts and bolts looks like something that I should put on my to do list!
