Hexies….in stacks…..many stacks!!! Just waiting to become ‘something’!
These came my direction from Ellen in my small local quilt group. I had been very negligent in hearing acknowledging their presence in my stash over the winter. Well, to be truthful, they had traveled to Texas with me in hopes of being joined together…….but……well…….those were busy days (that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!!!)!
On to the stitching. I’m just “eyeballing” the seam allowances/start-stop points and having a good time. This morning has some good results………….. It’s really amazing how fast these come together! I challenged myself NOT to take any fabric in my stash for the centers as I ran out of the yellow gingham. I’ll continue in the brighter yellow print for some of them and space them/arrange them later. Lots of ‘Y’ seams!!!!! Repetition/practice makes for better results after a while. I am definitely getting good at this!!!! LOL! When joining the petals to the center, the petal must be placed on the bottom and stitched on to the center from outer edge to the previous stitching or it won’t lay flat when finished (ask me how I know this!!!)………. Lunch time and then back at it.
To answer a comment left a while back when I “installed” the ‘LED’ light strips on Ms Juki, “No”, they don’t shine in my eyes. I angled the right-hand portion to the back and it’s perfect!!!!!
Let’s go stitchin’……………………
Note: This will be somewhat of an interesting assembly as most of these fabrics have a high percentage of poly in them!!!!! They do not take a sharp press at all!!!!! Ugh!!!!!
