Yippee!!! All that needs to be done to the Hexy quilt is a border/sashing…..sounds easy but… I went to Victoria yesterday to purchase some Nature’s Chorus Fabric or matching fabric just for this purpose but…alas.. they didn’t have anything suitable. I went to all three fabric shops and nothing.
I have two fat quarters of this striped fabric which would have worked nicely but it’s not enough. Darn!
Oh well- I’m calling it finished! It would have gone into the pile to be hand-quilted with the rest of the finished quilts. It will be a few months before my Hand Quilting group will be able to hand quilt it anyway, so I have lots of time to find a suitable border print. I will keep my eyes open….
I am so happy with the Hexy quilt as it is so pretty. I took a close up picture of the quilt with the striped fabric that I am going to try to find as I really like it as the outside border. If not that, then something will jump out and bite me, I’m sure! Think I will have to redecorate one of the spare bedsrooms so that I can use this as a throw!
The man-hand is mine….I do have more fingers….The ‘Jaw’ music is REALLY loud now….
Top, left shelf…..WHEW! No shark and more importantly NO MORE UNFINISHED QUILTS!!! Whoopeee…..think I’ll take the rest of the day off…maybe check out a few quilting books and magazines…..hmmmmm….What should I do next? Stay tuned…..maybe I could clean out the rest of the cupboard? Are those bags of lace? Nooooooooooo…..
Have a super Sunday! And Happy Quilting!
