I have FINALLY finished this hand sewn quilt! It is made using English paper piercing, so you cut out LOTS of hexagons out of paper, tack a bigger hexagonal fabric piece around the paper then hand stitch each one to each other!!! Once they are the hexagonal is stitched around all six sides you can take the paper out. BUT yes I discovered once I had hand quilted it that I had left ONE piece of paper in! he he
I learnt a lot about quilting making this. I have just finished another lap quilt (which I can't share until the birthday girl gets it!!) and so now I am ready to start my first bed size quilt!
But tomorrow is PAPER CRAFTING day!!
see you then!
