I've got two "another ones" for you today, a reader's Value Proposition Hexagon QAL blocks and my Mom's (Anne H) latest African quilt.
Deb arranged her Value Proposition Hexagon Quilt Along blocks on her design wall and we can see there is another fabulous quilt in the making! They are very different from Bunny's blocks that I showed you yesterday but equally stunning! I don't think Deb has decided on the colour for her middle path although she has auditioned some possible fabrics.
My Mom had made an African themed quilt and it was purchased by a friend who loves her work. She took it to a framer who affixed it to a scrim which was then stretched over a wood frame. It was stunning and Mom and I thought it was a great idea so she made a small quilt and we stretched it over an artist canvas. This is the first attempt. It isn't perfect but I've now got the basic idea as to how to do it!
We purchased an artist canvas that was stretched over a wood frame. The quilt top was trimmed so that the width and length were each 1/2" larger than the canvas (this extra 1/2" is for the seam allowances). I attached 1 1/2" strips of black fabric to all four sides of the quilt and the sewing was started/stopped 1/4" from the corners; each strip was about 1/2" longer than the length/width of the quilt. I pulled the strips to the back and used a staple gun to staple them in place but I left the corners loose. At the corners I turned the edges under and with black thread stitched them together. The last step was to staple the corners. We are pretty happy with how it turned out. Now she had better get cracking on another wall hanging so I can quilt and frame it for her!
I'll be out tomorrow so there'll be no post until Wednesday so until then, happy sewing!
