The hexagon quilt is finally finished, washed and on its owners bed. Yippeee! I know you have seen this hexie one before (it’s been a work-in-progress with the binding for awhile). But, I am so happy with the way it turned out.
And I have a binding tip that maybe some of you already know (and you should have told me a long time ago)….but INVISIBLE THREAD is the bomb dot com (okay I never say that so I have no idea why I just wrote it). But, it really is.
I found this trick out when I was sewing the baby coin quilt and didn’t have the right color thread to match the coral color for hand-stitch the binding. So, I made a quick trip to a big-box store that had thread and of course, they didn’t have the right color either. But, they did have invisible thread…..and it worked like a charm.
I really am amazed at how little of the stitching you can see (only a sew-er would be amazed about that). But it’s true. I compared it to another quilt where I thought I was using perfectly matched thread….and I can still see a bit of the ladder stitches. With the invisible thread……nada.zip.zero.
YAY for invisible thread, YAY for Friday…and thanks again for all your nice comments about the Vintage Sundress Pattern. You are all the nicest…..
Have a wonderful weekend!
