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.
Well done on finishing the top Mrs, but my eyes are still deceiving me and i still see brown! ;o)ReplyDelete
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?ReplyDelete
Yay for the finish. Love Diane's comment and I totally agree.ReplyDelete

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".ReplyDelete
*gasp* is that brown in there?! Best not let Hads see... ;o)ReplyDelete
Pretty! Can't wait to see more!ReplyDelete
Sometimes you just have to do what you just have to do! Sanity saved! Love the teasing close-up!ReplyDelete
Ooh exciting, standing by for the reveal!ReplyDelete
I'm all about the extra wide backing!!!! Can't wait for the reveal - it looks so colourful! xReplyDelete
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:)ReplyDelete
Yay for your flimsy finish...Ive never used a wide back but honestly it makes so much sense.ReplyDelete
You are powering along with sewing at the moment girl!
Looks great, Good for you on the extra wide backingReplyDelete
