After a lengthy hiatus and thanks to Cyndi I am able to start back on my 5/8ths" hexagon portable project.
The side edges measure 16" and the greatest width is 31" across at this stage. I am making it up as I go and ran out of the background fabric in March. Cyndi, angel that she is, hunted around and found some more for me. I count myself extremely lucky. The back of these things always intrigue me, so if you feel the same way you may be interested in this
The intention is to hand quilt it, so I have been paring back the seam allowance after sewing. Somewhere I read that this is a big no-no, but since I use at least a dozen topstitches to put each edge of the hexagons together I am hoping it should be strong enough. Opinions on this are not only welcome, but desired.
Juggling projects is always a problem for the unrepentant starter that I am. I managed to finish another quick, basket block from the Beyond the Cherry Tree Album quilt.
Finally, while I was out and about last week I caught sight of the New South Wales state government trying to make a quick buck.
I know we are almost bankrupt, but selling our state (Mitchell) library is going one step too far!
