Another Finish!

Two in one month. I'm on a roll! Although this one is small I am really excited about it because it is the sample for my hexie class. The book for my class is on back order, so until it arrives I will be making more samples to demonstrate ways to finish hexagon projects. Stay tuned.

Hexagon Class Sample   Jan 2014

Back of hexagon mat

The back is finished with a fused interfacing on a blue fabric because I wanted finished edges. I traced the outside of the finished piece, fused the interfacing to the backing and cut all the inside points. After ironing I was ready to hand stitch the edges. Well, not so was too BIG! I had not taken the paper pieces out yet when I traced it. After removing the paper, ironing and using my Best Press I was ready to start the backing process again. It fit this time.

Some of you might remember this project was supposed to be a quilt but you know how things go!

Upon further inspection of my colorful project I noticed it is not symmetrical! How can that be? The three parts of the whole were all the same but if you count the points on all sides they are not the same. All right you math people out there, how can this happen? I would like to understand this.

Have a great week.

HAPPY 2014

I never make new years resolutions because I believe all "rules" are made to be broken. I have my goals at this moment to finish some of my unfinished projects. We will see how that goes as the year progresses. 

I found a Small Blog Meet at Lily's Quilts that should be fun. I love finding new bloggers and learning what they are into. 

The last finished project for 2013. I think I started this in 2012, found it again in 2013, finished and had it quilted by Zany Quilter. She does such a wonderful job. She also does a great job on her photo's of the quilting. Check it out.

I'm supposed to be cleaning my sewing rooms but instead I did a post! Lots more fun. Complete finishes are so few and far between, I get so excited when I have one.

Until next time be happy, healthy and safe.
