I’d say that these are finishes, but they are not. Closer… but not quite done yet.
First, I finally finished quilting my tumbling blocks quilt. Here are more pictures than you want to see.
I really love this quilt and plan on making another some time. Tumbling blocks is one of my favorite patterns. It’s so graphic and I love playing with the fabric values.
Now what to bind it in? I have the border fabric cut into 2.5″ strips ready for binding. But that border fabric is kind of thick and I don’t know if I’ll like hand stitching it down. What other suggestions do you have?
The next almost-finish is the hexagon flower quilt top that I’ve been hand piecing off and on since May 2012.
I’m going to stop there and put on borders. So how do I do that? Just cut through some of the flowers making it square? Or add a solid set of hexagons and half-hexagons to make it square? I think i set it cockeyed so I’m not sure the second option will actually square it up. Any suggestions on a border color for this top?
