Pieced!

All HSTs are sewn together and one 72" x 72" quilt top is complete. Happy, happy me.


I've splurged and ordered extra wide backing fabric. Something to do with not wanting to make a whole bunch more HSTs for the back if I had to piece something into a normal width fabric that would make it wide enough and still cohesive with the front design. I went with the cost versus sanity line of thinking, and decided as my sanity was already hanging by a thread I had best just order the extra wide.

So, as soon as that fabric has arrived basting and quilting will commence. Meanwhile I have hexies to keep me entertained.

  2. congratulations on the finished top. I think it should be a law that the designers make at least one extra wide with each fabric line, don't you?

  6. Lol. I agree with the cost versus sanity principle. I will remin myself of this whenever I am feeling frugal and trying to "make do".

  12. Love the colours in your HST's - I usually use the wide backing fabric too as I find it easier to get a smooth quilt back if it isn't pieced:)

    You are powering along with sewing at the moment girl!
