For the last month this little baby quilt top
has been a constant companion...
It has traveled with me...
I have been hand piecing everywhere I go.
94 Hexagons later...
it is ready for a border.
I chose lavender for the border:
I wanted straight edges, so I pieced in
half hexagons along the top and bottom...
I pieced in half diamonds along the sides...
Then I added a 3 inch border of lavender fabric.
I have plenty of yellow leftover for the binding...
I pawed through the fabric cupboard
and found pieces of flannel
that I seamed up for the back side...
I plan to machine quilt a
Clam Shell/Baptist Fan pattern.
Since this is a traditional style quilt, I thought
I would keep the quilting traditional as well.
Why machine quilt a hand pieced quilt?
* I create too many quilts to get them all
hand quilted in my lifetime.
* Hand Quilting irritates my carpal tunnel.
* A baby quilt will hold up better with
machine quilting vs hand quilting.
Baby Hexagon Quilt Top...
It is all spray basted and ready
to go under the needle
of the Sweet Sixteen......very soon!
