In the Hoop at Last!

Today’s Slow Sunday Stitching will consist of making a start on quilting my hexagon scrap quilt. Yes, it’s in the hoop at long last!

In the hoop

Last week’s lone star has transformed into a lone star in a hexagon. It’s number 32 so far.

    Do you have a plan for the quilting, or are you waiting for the quilt to tell you what it wants? That’s one of the things I enjoy about hand quilting: you can change your mind before it’s too late, whereas machine quilting goes so quickly, and is much harder to unpick!

      That’s what I like about hand quilting too – machine quilting runs away with me! I am thinking I will keep the quilting very simple as there are so many different fabrics and colours going on. I think I will echo quilt in the light coloured hexies but not sure how densely yet.

    All these hand sewn hexie projects that everyone is making deserve to be hand quilted. Have fun stitching this week.

    What a beautiful collection of color. Hand quilting will give you the time to enjoy each one.

    I have been working on a hexagon quilt since 2011 and it is still WIP. You are so lucky to be so close of the finish line and finally enjoy your quilt. It looks lovely btw. Enjoy! ;^)

    It’s always so exciting when a quilt finally makes it into the hoop – congratulations on getting there with your hexies. It looks very pretty too.

  12. What a couple of lovely hexie projects. Anxious to see how you end up quilting the one in the hoop. It’s so vintage looking.

    So pretty! You are pushing me to pull out my bunch of hexagons from the drawer to start putting them together.
