Just a little challenge
A lady came by a little while ago with a not quite finished quilt top that she and her late husband had made together while he was ill. Very understandably she hasn’t felt able to finish it herself but at the same time would like to see it finished.
We laid out the quilt and had a look at how to finish the top without doing lots more hexies. I actually liked its organic shape and we decided that I would stitch it onto black fabric to get it to a regular shape and size she wanted for a bed quilt.
I pinned it out from the centre and then tacked the edge before stitching it with an invisible thread all the way round and within the hexies themselves so it was securely attached. It now stands at 95″ by 108″ and is ready to quilt
