While busily finishing up Hannie’s Spring look book (which I just have button holes to do on one more item!) I have been slowly working on some other projects.
I actually found this quilt top that I started over 2 years ago (it’s probably way closer to 3 years ago) that I never finished. It’s funny because the fabric would not be my first choice today….but I remember when I bought it I was enthralled with the words written on it. (It was when fabric was just coming out with words.)
But it deserved to be finished….
so I pieced the last couple of rows and then sent it off to be quilted.
I am liking it more and more because the pattern does have a lot of white space in it.
And now I am on to binding….ahh….the joys of hand-sewing during tv time 😉 Show you the whole thing soonish….
And the other project that I have been giving quite some time to is this hexagon quilt for a soon-to-be 11 year old. I am sewing the hexagons by machine (which is a pure genius idea) and once I got the hang of it, is going pretty fast. I just have the border rows to finish up now and then to press the whole thing. I am loving the fabrics in this quilt–most of which are from Michael Miller’s lines, with other odds and ends thrown in the mix. I bought the kit with the hexies already cut here, which was a huge timesaver.
Perfect for a boys room.
My only quandary now is how to quilt it—meandering, lines, something else—I am at a loss. Any quilting experts have any fantastic suggestions?
