I couldn’t wait any longer – I want to show you this quilt and that still isn’t the end – I might take a break and catch you up on news from the farm and then return for more quilts. I really hate adding so much text because I think you won’t read it and only look at the pictures but the pictures are so worth it!
From top to bottom every piece except the three appliqué pieces and the spacers are small HEXAGONS! This is difficult to see but here’s the black background –
Just look at this quilting!
The gold hexagons that make up the border all have a different decorative stitch!
Many are pieced.
Think about this now – from top to bottom it’s all hexagons – maybe 2”. Barb – why do you like hexagons so much?
And do you wonder how she did this? She had a new Bernina and wanted to try each foot and each decorative stitch so she made a large piece of fabric -?12” maybe – and stitched the entire piece with the decorative stitch and then cut out the hexagons. Brilliant!
Later today I will post again about news from the farm – not as if I’ll ever forget it but I do want to share it with you but not when we’re enjoying these gorgeous quilts from Barb and Joyce.
Gotta get some laundry and housework done and then weed trimming outside. Still no rain here – over a month now. Garden can’t possibly germinate and I don’t want to stress out the grass by mowing it. Feast or famine in North Iowa.
Meet me back here later.
