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!
Oh my this is going to be fantastic! What a fun day when you get to the point that you can assemble all the parts!ReplyDelete
I appreciate seeing this work in progress. I actually learn alot about how you stitch them all together. You hint with the rows has been a lifesaver too!!!ReplyDelete
That edging is going to be just perfect and its all coming together so wonderfully : )ReplyDelete
There's a drama on here called Home Fires which you might like to keep an eye out for, its war time period drama and features the Womens Institute - sadly no topless hunks in it so far but choc full of social history at least lol
This is really very striking! I love it and I can't wait to see it together!ReplyDelete
How very lovely. This quilt is going to be a beauty. Your work is very inspiring.ReplyDelete
That border is fantastic. You are so productive, Karen!ReplyDelete
You must sew non-stop! I'm hoping you will show us how the outside row is done - the little tent pieces.ReplyDelete
It sometimes feels like I am sewing non-stop but I am keen to finish this quilt! I wrote about how I pieced the hexagons and sewed them together to make the border on May 11, 2015. You can find it here: http://faeriesandfibres.blogspot.ca/2015/05/sewing-border-hexagons-together.htmlReplyDelete
It's so amazing seeing them all stitched together. Brings back fond memories ; )ReplyDelete
