When “Traditional meets Modern” or Loose ends #2…….

Begun in this post, is now complete and gifted. 034

The hexies were from a package of premade Moda hexies using fabrics from Aneela Hooey’s lines. I’m sure they work great as English paper piecing handwork but really weren’t as exact/identical in size & shaping as those that I would make so, when it came to do the “grid”, the straight stitched lines were a bit of a challenge to get lined up with the pieces (which were held in place with dabs of glue and are 3 dimensional as they aren’t totally stitched in place). 022 023

And a glimpse of the back…………….032

Usually, I put some type of label on a gift but this is to be totally reversible, so no label this time!

Thread: (top) Aurifil Mako 50 cotton; (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro Poly

Batting: Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 (cotton/poly)

Client’s quilts up next. Stay tuned…………………………
