Last night I got to work quilting my modern hexagon quilt.
I like to start in the center of the quilt to avoid puckering in the middle. So, I drew a bunch of lines on the center portion of the quilt and started quilting. I alternated between 1/4" and 1/2" between the echoed lines.
It took me a couple of hours to get this much done. (Ignore the threads I need to bury.) I really like how it came out. It's cool how the echoed hexagons turn into a star as the pattern gets progressively smaller. Now I need to figure out what I'm going to do in the white sashing and the hexagons.
can't wait to see this one done :) Love the echo center!ReplyDelete
Awesome Sauce. That's a lot of quilting. Not the fun kind, the annoying kind. Precise with lots of thread ends and turning. Well worth it though.ReplyDelete
That's looking fantastic!ReplyDelete
It looks great. I have yet to figure out how to get my thread on the top of the quilt so that I can bury the thread. I always do a stippling design so I can just go from edge to edge and not have to bury. Would love to know how.ReplyDelete
I really like that quilting design.ReplyDelete
This looks like it will be gorgeous when it's finished!ReplyDelete
Hey, that's neat how it morphs into a star.ReplyDelete
Wow this looks like a ton of work. I think it will be worth it in the end. Geometry is really cool.ReplyDelete
Wow, that quilting is amazing!!! The star effect is definitely worth the quilting effort, says me;-) I find it less overwhelming to keep a self-threading needle next to my machine and bury my knots as I go... that way they don't get tangled and I don't have to sit down and do it all at once. Plus it gives me time to contemplate my next round of quilting;-)ReplyDelete
