I've also dug up my blue hexagons. I really, really want this done. It is a bit small and I want to make it bigger but I am NOT making more hexagons for this. So I am going to applique the edges onto some border fabric.
Can you see I am trying to fill in the top and bottom edges to straighten it up a bit.
This seems to be taking ages but I'm almost ready to cut border fabrics. With a bit of a push I will be ready to quilt this before long. I love hand-quilting and I know this would look great done this way but I think I will just do some very simple machine quilting to get it done.
I am also working on my scrap quilt but will show you that in my next post.
I dragged Jason to a quilt shop yesterday about 35miles away from my home. I promised him a pub lunch as a temptation. He is always up for a feed so I knew that would do it. We did indeed have a really good lunch and the quilt shop was wonderful. You know when you could just keep buying and buying ? I did get a few little pretties but could have got SO much more. But I am trying to stash bust so was quite restrained.
And thanks for all your lovely messages about Joan. We all know what it is like to lose a friend and it is difficult. I went back to quilters on Tuesday and it just won't be the same without her. I will miss her enormously and my thoughts are with her family ( who I feel I know personally through Joans stories ). Sadly she was working on a beautiful blue and cream log cabin quilt that was almost ready for quilting. Her sister also quilts so I am thinking she may finish it for her.
Take care xxx
