Curved Hexie Stitch Along - and a Finished Quilt Top
I've decided to do a switch-a-roo and use Tula Pink's Homemade line of fabric for the Curved Hexie Stitch Along. Sadie was at our house yesterday and she kept staring at a colorful bin of fabric beside my chair. I knew then and there that it was the perfect time to pull out my fat quarter pack of Homemade. It's all for Sadie! This would also be beautiful in solids, such as Cherrywood, but I just feel the need to go BRIGHT with this right now.
And LOOK! The sewing machine will just fit on a 2" hexie!!! I've even more excited now!
I'll probably throw some coordinating solids in here and there to break up the busyness, but I think Tula's line will really shine here. Fussy cutting, here I come!
You still have time to join the fun! If you don't have a ruler, simply send me $20 via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll be shipping rulers twice per week. The first shipment goes out tomorrow. And don't forget to order a pack of 2" hexie papers from Paperpieces.com. I'll send a few sample papers along with each ruler so you'll be ready to go.
I pressed my Marshal top this morning and I'm calling it DONE! I couldn't find a suitable backing fabric in my stash, so I ordered a wide gray grunge this morning. Will I quilt this one myself??? Maybe. I delivered Pfeffernusse to a long arm quilter friend yesterday - I'd never attempt to quilt that one because it has SO many seams and it's HUGE! But Marshall is a bit smaller, so I might attempt it.
I'm so glad to have this UFO top complete. All the handwork on Marshall kept me going as I recovered from my breast cancer surgeries. A special quilt!
