I've stitched together all of the rosettes so that the panel that will connect to the right side of the centre panel of my Birds in the Loft hexagon quilt. The star border is also stitched and ready to be attached to this panel.
What have I been doing in my spare time? I've managed to stitch all of the rosettes that will form the top section of the quilt and the bottom half is almost done!
The red border with stars that I showed to you the other day is now finished and it can now be attached to the top section of the quilt.
What's next? I'll finish stitching the bottom section of the quilt and its border.
I'm planning on adding to the red outer border to create a straight outside edge and think I will add it before I stitch the sections of the quilt together. It will make the sewing more manageable and it will mean less handling of the quilt! When I reach the point where I am ready to add the red strips to the outer border I'll be sure to explain how I will do it!
For those of you who left comments on my last post thank you, thank you, thank you for all the kind words. I am having problems with blogger. Normally when a comment is posted I get an email but lately I find that I'm not receiving email notification of every comment. I've tried to find and answer to this issue and so far no luck. I do reply to every comment so if you don't hear back from me it means one of two things: you are a no reply blogger or I didn't receive notification that you left a comment! I do check my current post for comments but I don't go back and check every post (I'm too busy sewing)!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
