|Maybe you can see that I decided to use a narrow blanket stitch with variegated neutral thread. |
It seems to be blending well, almost taking on some of the fabric colors.
I'm still trying to get ahead on cutting temperature squares. I know I'm going to have multiples of each fabric in the quilt so I'm just trying to get "ahead" on the variety. I finally invested a whole $2.99 for a coupon holder and labeled each section with the corresponding temperature. It's working so far but it's getting pretty full with summer colors...
Our local hexie club is modifying my design to make a Quilt of Valor for a local event. We will each make 3 red & blue rosettes to be appliqued to a white background. The November event is called Red, White & Gratitude. There will be a quilt show of all the donated quilts, along with raffled items, and then the quilts will be donated to vets from my county in Western NY/USA. I have an idea for a quilt that I also hope to make...just need to get it started.
|One down...2 to go...|
And the most fun was meeting an out-of-state bloggy friend yesterday - a bloggy friend who likes hexies!! I won't post who it was until I know they are home safe and sound - no need to advertise empty houses!!
Happy Hump Day!
I'll be topping off my day by hiking with friends at our local state park after work :)
