I have baggies of backgrounds to baste on to papers, lots of papers cut out, star points already basted and waiting to baste, hexies basted to match up with stars and backgrounds. In general all the stages of making in the sewing kit.
This is a S L O W sewing project... keeping all the super skinny points and angles is not for the weak of heart but they are adorable. I don't mind a long term project, heh heh.
I finished the Christmas hexie table runner too.
All the quilting was done with gold metallic thread and it hardly shows at all!!!
I did a very time consuming and fiddly things in finishing this time... I layered batting and backing for the quilting, then trimmed the backing and turned all the edges under to meet the top hexies, then straight stitched twice.
For the Rainbow Scrap challenge color of the month, purple, I stitched up 12 chandelier blocks for this month,.,,

So, this week's sewing projects in one post. Some ongoing, some by hand, some done by hand sewing with machine finishes, some part of a bed quilt to be and some for the table.
I love quilting!
