Busy, busy, busy

Here is what I've been doing these past few days. My design-wall is overflowing

No less than 3 out of 5 blocks for SE-2 are now finished. They look good, don't they ? Very pink, yes, but that's ok with me :-)

What is below them, will be a red-and-white Jewel-box quilt. Everything in that one is from shelves and scrap-bag. Very scrappy. And its fun to make, 'cause quite a few of the fabrics in there have been used in other projects, and/or are gifts or part of exchanges, so many of the fabrics have stories and memories. Nice.
It will - in the fullness of time - go to my DSister-in-law ... if she wants it. She has been diagnosed with MS and is having a very rough bout right now. She will have chemo in November, in the hope that that will stop the attachs ... and then she'll need a quilt. Correction. *I* will need her to have a quilt about her person, as a long-distance hug.
It will be quite big. The 5 blocks you see on the design-wall are 1/4 of the quilt. 16" blocks, 4x5 setting. Big quilt :-)

And today holds : another SE-2 block, and more Jewel-box blocks. It would be very nice indeed if the Jewel-box top is finished on Sunday, when it's DSon's b'day and she (hopefully) will be here with the rest of the family. She can see it and tell me if she wants it.

What are those teeny tiny hexagons on the right?

You can see the hexagons two posts prior to this one. "Madison's Patch" is what they are called. Made with Inklingo :-)
