|This is hexie # 1698 out of 1698!!!!!!|
|And this was the very last stitch!!|
Yes, there was a "little" happy dance going on!!!! I first blogged about Value Proposition on 5/5/14 so it's been nearly 2 years. Of course, given all the other projects I work on at the same time, I still think it was pretty good pace.
Next step is the borders. Last night I folded and laid them out on the cutting table to see if I liked the dimension. I'm currently thinking 2" inner and 8-10" outer. The plan for tonight is to see how well the hexie portion fits on my double bed and how wide the borders would need to be for the overhang. I'll try to decide somewhere between the two sets of dimensions.
In theory, I would like to sew the 2 borders together and therefore be able to only have to wrestle with the quilt as a whole one time. I'll miter the corners, I just need to make sure I have enough fabric to do so.
I'm sorry but "figuring" borders is not on my fun list of things to do...
BTW - this is blog post # 1150!
