Welcome to My Blog!
Hi! I'm Laura Sapko, designer and quilter. I'm so glad you could stop by! This blog is all about quilting, raw edge appliqué and thread painting. I try to do one or two different projects a month so if you browse the Archives, each month will show you a different project or two. Thanks for stopping by!

Each hexagon represents what will become a ring of six hexies in a range of yellow, orange, red orange, magenta, light teal , lime, and dark teal. I’m still waiting for a shipment of several of the colors… And then there’s always another quilt shop tour in July! So CAL Quilt Shop Tour here we come! . . . @katja_marek @tulapink #newhexagon #ilovehexies #hexielove #handsewn #ilovecolorSuch fun little piles of pieces for my summer hand piecing enjoyment! 🧡💙💚💗♥️ It does however take quite some time to get all the fabric starched , cut, and marked for 8 hexies in each pile 😂 🤪 3 down and at least 12 - 15 more piles to go... and that doesn’t include the background hexies... thinking about gray for those. But who knows...I may go for solid colors. I think I have until next summer to decide that! 😂😂😂😂 . . . @tulapink #newhexagon #ilovehexies #hexielove #handsewn #ilovecolor #quilter #quilt #quiltingAre these cute blocks or what? 💚💗🧡💙 getting my go anywhere handsewn project ready for going everywhere this summer!
