Yesterday was the last Friday session our P & Q group had before our Exhibition on 7th, 8th and 9th of September. "Show and Tell Session," was great as many ladies had pulled out all the stops and completed quilts and hangings in the nick of time. ( AREN'T DEADLINES WONDERFUL LIKE THAT! ) Among those quilts I am pleased to say was a Blue Hexagon I spy Quilt with a girlie theme! Labelled and all.
It is single bed size, measures 76" by 61" and is made up of 325 individual hexagons; hand sewn and simply machine quilted following the hexagon shape. This makes the back appear like honeycomb.( or chicken netting ) This is done "quilt as you go," before the hexagons are sewn together in strips / rows.The rows are then sewn to each other.When the final strip is sewn on that's it - finished! ( no sandwiching or squaring up or binding ). ( click on photos to enlarge )
So mission accomplished with 12 days to spare! I have a relieved smirk on my face.
