My work on Hubby's Half Hexie (HHH) Quilt has been interrupted ... at his request. One of Hubby's colleagues is due to have a baby boy at the end of this month and he would like to give them a special little quilt.
This hobby of mine is starting to come in handy! Do you think I should charge him double for a rush job? So, how much would that be then? ... Hmm ... double of nothing is ... nothing! Boy he drives a hard bargain :)
I started cutting and playing around with fabric last night ... liked the direction it was going in and just kept sewing!
I managed to piece the whole quilt by bed time ... although I do have borders to add to bring up the size a bit.
I'm thinking of backing it with this funny moustache fabric ...
... and quilting it with a variegated thread in a similar way to this.
Also, how about some rounded corners on those borders instead of 90 degrees? ... hmm ... yes, I'd like to try that.
Binding will be a scrappy assortment of the leftover pieces from the sashing fabric.
Of course as this is a Work In Progress, all of the above could change! But one must start with a plan, mustn't one?!
