Design Wall Monday - 7/29/13
Doesn't everyone have hexie coasters and keep their clickers in a funky flower pot?!
It appears that I didn't take a single "process" picture of this project. Oops - I promise to take some when I finish the 2nd table topper because I learned a few things along the way.
It appears I started this last July when my other project at the time was no longer portable. I made kinda slow progress because it wasn't my fav project - the shapes took more effort. Of course in the ensuing year I've basted lots of different shapes so now they are no problem. I completed the top last September and then quilted it sometime in the fall but stalled at finishing the project. I wanted to replicate something I had seen online but I was kinda going to be making it up as I went along...
Since I never took pictures, essentially, after the project was quilted, I completed another row of hexies to match the top and stitched it around the perimeter of the topper. The batting and backing was trimmed away. The facing row of hexies was flipped to the back side and then appliqued in place. There is no binding to this project!
The second Star Blossom topper is about half done...I was waiting to finish the first one so I had the kite pieces I need. This is from a kit so the shapes are not standard sizes.
I guess these curly-q quilt designs are becoming a bit of a trademark...
I'm good at them and use them a lot :)
