Hexagon Quilt Top Progress Report:
Looking at and handling these bright batiks
has helped make this winter pass by quicker.
They make me happy just looking at them!
Last evening I began the border process:
These uneven edges will be straight
once the border is on...
I paper pieced partial hexagon shapes
to fit into the borders...
I had a lot of the dark pink fabric,
so it was the best choice for the border...
The half hexagon shapes will go on 2 borders...
The partial hexagon shapes will go on the
other 2 borders...
The quilt top measures 70 inches square.
More than 200 hexagons.
I have decided that is a healthy size lap quilt...
time to stitch on the borders.
This is where I hand stitch in the evenings:
If you look out the window...
snow is falling this morning.
If you look closely, you can see the
cow barns across the river.
We use the binoculars in the widow to check
on the cows and calves.
We are having a bit of a white out this morning...
The 2 big barns are where the
cows and calves are.
If you look close, just below each barn...
you can see a few of the cows outside.
The tulips in the planter out front
are getting a dusting of snow today.
Time to bundle up and head across
the river to check on the cattle...
