The finished top sat (um, hung, actually) on my design wall for a month. I fought w/ my machine when it came to quilting the top. I tried a different binding technique and it did not go so well. Alas, it's finished, washed and nice and crinkly. This is the 4th doll quilt that I made for my friend's grand-daughter (1 for each of them). My own improved pattern made entirely of scraps.
This is what 170 hexagons look like. Hexagons of Hope is collecting 2" hexagons to be distributed to quilters displaced from their homes as a result of the brushfires in Australia.This project allowed m to use up some scraps and fabric that I was not sure what I was ever going to do with. In the process, I realized that I really need to stop and look at small sections of fabric (even fabric I thought I did not like) b/c when I do I actually find that I like the fabric. Did that make sense? Oddly enough, it makes sense to me.
