So now I'm machine quilting the piece! Woohoo! Feels good to be back sewing or should I say making something. The background was pressed and looked quite nice when sandwiched....but pushing and scrunching this piece under the machine sure makes the quilt look wrinkled! I've stitched inside all the seams and now starting on the inside of the strips.
The only funky part of the quilting will be the quilting around the hex's. I've traced out one of the squares on tracing paper and started to play around with possible quilting designs.
My first thought was to echo around each hex piece but I don't think that will work. On the tracing paper I drew 3 lines around the hex strips and that might work.
There's a lot of quilting to keep me busy so I'll have time to think through the quilting design for the hex blocks!
Thursday is Kris, our DIL's BD! I didn't get to the kids earlier this week so I'll be headed down to spend time with Nick and Amber then we'll all go out to dinner to celebrate Kris' BD. Should be a nice time sitting with everyone!! Bob will stay home with the 'girls'!!
