Hexie Progress while we Camped in the Rain in June

The husband and I loaded up Sid and went to Trillium Lake up on the Mountain... for a long weekend in June... 

It rained all but one day... 40-50 degrees and rained... it was cold and wet... so thankful for Sid! 

On Saturday the clouds parted a bit and we saw blue sky!  So we headed out on a short walk part way around the lake...

For those that don't live here.... Would you believe me if I told you you that these Rhododendrons grow like weeds up on the mountain?  They do.... And I love them...

And here is what I worked on all weekend!  I'm making progress! It's actually starting to look like a quilt!

This is lovely! I love the simple white against the bright scraps, so simple and effective. And it grows in front of your eyes - brilliant!
Am also making a similar EPP one myself using diamonds but the overall effect is different - now i want to have a go at one like this!
Sorry to hear the weather was a wash out on your break, but the scenery looks stunning.

Fabulous photos and a fabulous quilt in the making!

Glad that you had somewhere dry to sit and stitch!

Beautiful and amazing what one can do on a rainy week-end!
Jodi I was wondering if you could post that Layers of Hope is needed quilters to make quilts for the families of the 19 firefighters that were killed in Arizona. We have a few spoken for, but have a need for many more!http://layersofhopequilting911.blogspot.com/

Your photos make it look like an idyllic spot- even if it did rain! Hopefully on your next visit the sun will shine some more! Your EPP project is really coming along! It's very pretty!

Lovely hand work and colors! I am still making 10-15 hexies a day and may start assembling them in the next month or two. I can hardly wait! You inspire me to stay the course & keep making more.

We also travel in our own "home on wheels"...no hotels, restaurants or waiting lines at airports. I love sleeping in our own beds every night, and like you, enjoying the great outdoors.

I love how your little quilt is progressing. You inspired me to put together my own little travel kit - after purchasing the little diamond templates from your website. I'm looking forward to starting mine as we travel. You're quite the inspiration, my dear. (Did you know that those tiny Moda mini charms are the perfect precut size for your paper templates? yup!)

Happy 4th!

Looks like a great place to camp. I love the rain. We camp in our little teardrop trailer my husband made. Your hexie's are so cute 💙

Pretty quilt!
Rhododendrons grow wild where I grew up too! So lovely!

Your post made me a little bit homesick. I grew up in the Northwest where rhododendrons grew wild. They are one of the things I miss most about living in Florida. I don't, however, miss the rain (especially camping in the rain) as much as one might think. =)

Love your diamond EPP so much that I've started one too! I'll be taking my supplies along on vacation in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to see how you finish the quilt.

This reminds me I have a bunch of hexi's to finish up-a good project for the summer! Handwork relaxes me and is addicting. I love how yours is coming together.
