Stitchy progress!

I’ve finally finished my hexie quilt top! I have to admit there was a point when I thought it would never be finished, especially when I had to un-pick an entire row! But now I can say it’s done! Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed stitching this but there does come a time when you are near the end of a long project that you desperately want to cross the finish line!

hexie quiltHere is a little sneaky peek, sorry for the bad photo this was taken impromptu on my phone. I will of course have proper pictures of the completed project. I’ve decided I’m going to have a go at hand quilting this one… it seems fitting seeming as the quilt is hand-stitched. The dotted lines you can see are just my markings of where I will quilt, not sure if that’s cheating or not? I’m a bit of a  perfectionist though so this should save me some time in the long run.

Backing and binding

My backing fabric and binding fabric arrived on Friday but rather frustratingly the wadding failed to show, so my plan of doing some hand quilting over the weekend was not to be, its also why I marked the quilt lines with pen. How cute is the cherry binding! You can find it here and the backing fabric which is 108″ wide! is from here

My pick of the week

Finally my top picks from the past week, you can see here some of the photo-a-day prompts that I have done, and another sneak peak of the finished quilt top! (I’m @saysies if you want to follow me)
