I am thrilled to report and show that I stitched my last hexagon (well.. on this quilt).
Note my little helper.
Now you are looking at it sideways.. but I am still not finished. I have to add something to the sides (what you see as the top and bottom). I am adding a light brown portion so it will look like a wooden flower bed edge. Those two sides are not straight edges. I will use the same fabric as a binding on the quilt. I have white to use as the backing however I cannot just use white.. boring!! I am also going to do some red and green (and perhaps some yellow) blocking in a 1 foot section across a portion on the bottom. Then I will quilt the whole thing. When it is bound and almost done.. I will take what will be the turn down portion of the back. (You know the part you see of the back when you turn it down on your bed). I am going to applique a little design on that as well. So that is the plan for my quilt in the future.. wish me luck!!
Oh, one more note... I bought some spray on basting and a tarp to spray baste the quilt. I am going to pin baste it as well since I am hand quilting it and I don't know how long that spray baste will stay put. I have never used it before and I don't want this sucker to move an inch! I am just spray basting it to make SURE it stays put!
