Works In Progress


Posted on October 24th, by Amy in work in progress. 13 comments

I’ve been loving my hexie’s!  Here’s where I’m at so far in sewing the pieces together:

They go together pretty fast – I’m using 3/4″ templates that I purchased at PaperPieces. I’m excited to see these come together more!

 I bound an entire quilt, by machine.  In the past I’ve experimented with it on smaller items, table runners or pillow covers, but never a quilt.  Guess what? I love the look of the blanket stitch on the edge!  If you  haven’t ventured into it, take a look at Pat’s tutorial, she has a video to clearly demonstrate how she does it.  The only change to her instructions I made, was 2 1/4″ double fold binding, just as I usually do.

I just need to secure the corners, wash and photograph, and I’ll be ready for the Festival!

Last week I found a few Art Gallery basics at Tactile Fabrics to stash! Jennifer includes a free fat quarter with every purchase, and shipped within the hour! There’s a sale happening right now ;)

More soon ~ Amy

  1. All pretty bits! If, by some miracle, I finish more than one quilt for the festival, could I enter them both? Not sure what the rules are and want to be sure to be respectful…

  2. I didn’t know that the bias can be blanket stitch… I like the idea, I’ll have to try it. Your hexies are looking good, the remind me of antique floor tiles even in those beautiful solid colors, lovely!
