Another baby quilt and some hexies!

 Making lots of progress!!!  I got this second baby quilt quilted and the binding is finished!  :)  You can't really tell in this photo but all of these fabrics that were used in this quilt are polka dots.  Now 2 more to quilt and the puff/biscuit quilt needs to be finished and I'm not even close to having it done. 
 Here is the other baby quilt that I showed in the last post.  The binding is also finished on it. 
 I also worked on a few more of my hexies.  I'm not in any hurry to finish this project, it is just something that I work on while watching tv and such. 
 I did get curious to see how many that I actually had finished.  I put them all up on my design wall.  I guess that I will need twice this many in the end.  I roughly measured what I have on the wall and it was somewhere around 66" wide and 53" long.  I would like to have this at least large enough to fit on my bed.  I need a wider range of fabrics too.  I need to work on that.  I also need to decide on how that I want to finish the edges.  Any ideas on that?
 A closer view....
 I have some of them sewn into sets of 2 and some are still singles.  I have a total of 124 of them finished so far. 
I talked to Andrew earlier and he is doing fine, just tired.  I miss him but he does call me after every shift, IF he has cell signal.  He works 12-6am and 12-6pm everyday.  So every 6 hours he is working and the 6 hours that he has off, he is eating and sleeping and does this for 28 days straight.  Needless to say that when he comes home he is exhausted!  Speaking of exhausted, Richard was exhausted when he got home from work last night.  I felt sorry for him.  I thought he would fall asleep before he finished his dinner.  

Also please say a prayer for Richard.  He has a very important eye doctor appointment with the retina surgeons on Wednesday.  When he had his eye exam she saw a spot on his retina.  She said that if it was smooth then she wouldn't be so concerned but this one was not smooth so she was concerned enough to send him to a retina surgeon to make sure that it is not cancer or anything to be concerned about.

Great job on the quilt finishes. Will be thinking of you all on Wednesday and hope it is nothing serious. Keep taking care of you =).

Your quilts are beautiful. Glad to hear you talked to Andrew. Sounds like he is doing well. I will be praying for Richard. Try not to worry until we hear what the surgeon has to say. Hopefully it is nothing major. Have a great day and take care of you!

certainly hope the eye doctor appointment goes well, that can be scary.
I love your EPP quilt - do you baste with glue or thread baste?

Sending prayers and best wishes for Richard's eye exam.

I love the pink quilt you made, I'm sure it will be cherished.

Two very cute baby quilts under your belt! : )
The hexies look great--you always choose such warm and cozy looking fabrics!
Prayers will be offered in Richard's behalf that all will go well!
