Extreme Hexagon

I'm one of those people that just have to figure out how things work and why.  When I saw this quilt..not sure where...I just had to sit down and draft up the pattern.  Got my fabric all cut out and ready to put the design together when I was surfing one evening and saw this pattern with instructions on Quilter's Cache. It's called Jack's Chain and when I checked through my list of "someday I'm going to make this' , there it was...mind you, I didn't have a pattern just a picture so I guess that worked out all right. I need a challenge now and then and really have to challenge myself...it doesn't quite work when someone else challenges me...I get stubborn and dig my heels in...my Mom used to say I was perverse .

 Looked out our patio window the other morning and there they were..all still and watching something along the way. They stayed there for quite a while.  Sure do love to see them...mind you, not when they eat my hostas...


I swear this little princess is the laziest Sheltie around. Even when she decides she doesn't want the birds in the backyard she only barks at them while Tigger gives chase. I can almost hear her saying "nah, not today." That's Faith for ya!
