Whew! My hexagon quilt-a-long quilt top is complete! I must say this bad boy gave me a run for my money at times, trying to get all those little seams and points to line up, but I think for the most part I didn't do too bad of a job.
I think if I do something like this again with this method of piecing hexagons, I will definitly purchase the Creative Grids 60 degree double strip ruler that Julie from http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/ recommends, I looked at my local quilt shops and at joanns and not only could I not find this ruler, I couldn't find any 60 degree triange rulers. So I just used my 24 inch cutting ruler and lined up the 60 degree mark. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad of a method, but that Creative Grids ruler I think would make my cuts alot more accurate and quicker. Hmmm some food for thought.
I need to make a trip to Joanns this weekend and get fabric for the backing. Just the thought of a pieced back on this is giving me a headache, so I think I want to find a large scale print and use it for the backing. So I'm folding this quilt top up for now until I can get some backing fabric.
I have a few commissioned projects to tackle...two little girl tote bags and a baby quilt for a little boy, so I'm thinking I'll get those tote bags together and then come back to basting this quilt.
This may be a little slow moving in the comming weeks...football season is approaching and I need to do my fantasy football homework so I don't get schooled in our upcomming fantasy football drafts by all the guys in my leagues!!
