On With The Show

Continued on my 99 hexagons but have not much to show for ...completed three and a half rows by now and did manage to get into a bit of a rhythm with it. Just a matter of persistently picking it up.

Also continued on my little Chicken quilt (already forgotten what I am calling this). After much deliberation I returned to my original idea of quilting a grid over the squares. Nothing groundbreaking but I think it fits the simple design.


Yep, happy with this...I did this with the walking foot in the end and my trusted masking tape for guidance. This is why I prefer FMQ...forgot how many loose threads one has to sew in. Thankfully this is not a big quilt! Wondering now whether I should FMQ in the sashing or not...not sure whether this would be too much as I am planning to put a FMQ Swirl in the inner red border.

No idea yet what to do with the sunflower border. Any suggestions?

  3. Some times the simple option is the best Karin. I love the simpicity of your little quilt and don't think you need to add any other quilting. Grid quilting always looks great.
