A Hexie Dilemma
First, let's all give this gorgeous quilt top a standing ovation! This was made by one of my readers, Lou. But Lou has a question for all of us.
She says, "I have a hexie top all done but instead of cutting the hexies in half on the sides to square it up I want to applique them to a border.
So the question is:
Do I sew the border together and then applique the top on top or can I do one border side, then the next and then the top and bottom? And if so how do I sew them together? Can't figure that part out:)"
Let's all give a girl some advice! I'll put my 2 cents in tomorrow. I ADORE this quilt!!!
Somehow I never picked up a needle and thread OR sat at my BERNINA. It was one of those days...
But other things got accomplished (A/C repaired at condo, grocery shopping done, and fun lunch with a friend).
Wedding dress fitting with Daughter 2 (YAY!)
