Then laid out the remaining puzzle pieces for the hexagon star quilt and got busy stitching.
This is all I have left to put together and I will be done Done DONE!!!!! with the top. That's right, folks - the very next time you visit this blog it will feature a finished hexagon star quilt top. Seven years in the making (three plus of those years where not a stitch was taken) How long will it take to quilt it?
When I pulled out the camera to take pictures, I discovered that some photos had been languishing there for nearly a month! *shame on me* Seems I have been relying on my camera phone lately. When I posted the picture of the 'wedding quilt' I got some queries for more detailed photos that I didn't think I had. So here are a few details (that I enhanced in an odd way via Picassa to show the design more clearly)
And finally a look at the whole-ish quilt with the binding stitched down (some of it is lopped over the fence) before it went in the wash.
And last but not least there were several of these.
I was very nervous that the quilt would somehow disintegrate in the machine and I wanted proof of it's existence. I am sure I will have the very same anxious moments with those hexagons but it will be a while before we know for sure.
