FNwF September

I have been working all week on the hexie quilt & i'm getting bored but i want it finished. For the sew in last night i added the last 4 or 5 hexies on row 13. I have to stop now because i need to embroider the last 5 hexies i ended up without due to me miscounting somehow.

Pop over to our lovely hostess Wendy to find the links for what projects were worked on by the other 20 ladies who joined in last night.

Happy Stitching,

Happy Stitching.

FNwF September

Last night i joined in FNSI. Boy did September's sew in arrive darn fast i could hardly believe it when Cheryll's post popped up the other day. I worked on my hexagon quilt. It's slow going but it's getting there. Only 8 more rows of each to go. I managed to get row 5 finished, add the embroidered hexagons then start row 6 last night.
Pop over to visit our lovely hostess Cheryll to find links to see what everyone's projects were.

Happy Stitching,

hexagon quilt prgress

It  is slow sewing on the hexagon quilt as they are a little awkward to sew together this way. All the papers that have been left in are getting all scrunched up. Nothing a good iron won't fix. I use the gluing method for the hexagons & have found that the paper unfortunately sticks to well to the fashion fuse i use behind the embroidery. So far i've only had one paper stick hard in the embroidered ones that tore to pieces. Hopefully it will be the only one. Not that i'm short on 1" papers. :)

Happy Stitching,

Hexagon Quilt

Today i laid out the hexagons to get an idea how i want them to be sewn together as there are more pinks & blues than other colours. Got to the bottom & discovered I'd counted wrong with the embroidered hexies. I need 5 more. Oh well back to tracing & embroidering. Butvi did find i have quite a few flowers & cut out hexagons left over. 😊. Crappy photo & overcast day doesn't do justice to the lovely bright fabrics of Dilly Dally.

Happy Stitching
