Yes Another Post!
I finished up my mini Halloween quilt last night. Full disclosure, the binding is glued down and not yet stitched, maybe tonight.
I got some email questions about how the hexies are sewed down. I first glue down the hexies with just a smidge of glue, next I machine quilt them going from top to bottom, rotating each turn from point to point.
I don't always hit each point even though I try.
As you can see in this picture the edges that are not sewn down are open.
I love this fabric on the back and you can see the quilting design which is very cool! Even with all my misses you don't really see them.
I have been in a major clean up and out mode the past week. I came across a few leftover toys from my children. This Raggedy Andy that was my daugher Cait's was made by a family friend, Mrs. Hargraves who is no longer with us. So I gave him a good wash and now need to do some minor repairs. She wants to give him to her new son Finn. It's hard to believe this doll is 33 years old!
