Keeping Al company in the barn...

 Today I'm working on some hexagon flowers to add to a new quilt. This is a new pattern that I came up with to use "Flip Flop" packs from Hearts to Holly Quilt shop. Flip Flops are 8 fat eighths that coordinate and are packaged together. The pack I'm using for my quilt is mostly Fig Tree fabrics... soft yellows, aqua, pinky peach and soft green.
I took a picture of another pack that was at the shop... all 30's.. They're called flip flops because you see 4 of the fabrics on the top... flip them over, you see the other 4 fabrics. Great little packs to buy if you need added fabrics in a scrappy quilt. The shop has some pretty civil war packs too.
 



 So here's where I am... working in Al's barn garage (the car side)... He has this little work table that we like to sit at. I'm here and he's in the loft, getting it studded for an upstairs room... a man cave I think (doesn't matter to me, it's his barn).

And there he is... up on a ladder, putting up the partition... won't find me up that high... Not too fond of heights!

I like that idea of the 'flip-flop' and some pretty fabrics. What a project - and no, I don't like heights either.

Tell Bill, he doesn't REALLY want that much room... you just collect more stuff ;).
