The last border is a bit of a hurdle though…… lots and lots of hexies.
I've had so many questions about this quilt and the making of it. I'm having a grand time. Besides the notions that I mentioned last time (lazy susan cutting board and small rotary cutter) I have a couple more suggestions if you are interested in making something like this. Little grippy dots for the templates…...
This simple little notion has made all the difference in ease of cutting. I even had to do a little surgery on one to get teeny, tiny pieces for the hexie template. It works like a charm. I also recommend the Sewline glue stick pen!!! Glue basting the hexies instead of sewing through the paper is a dream!
And I have some other good news about the Mrs. Billings Coverlet quilt….. we are getting the pattern kits back in stock! They are on their way from Down Under and I should be able to ship again next week. This is the perfect project for stitching and watching the Olympics.
