Second FNSI

Pleased there was no power outage last night sew I got lots of things done....


First I hand stitched some more hexies together for the Chateau Hexagon BOM . Now I only have four flowers to do for the corners of the borders..


Then I traced and blanket stitched the last block.. Can now get on with the hand stitching....Next will be putting all the blocks together, adding the hexies and doing the border...Hmm! It would be nice to have it finished for our Quilt Hanging in 5 weeks...


I decided it was time I learnt how to use the BSR tool on my machine...


It is weird to use when you disconnect the foot and it goes automatically... I prefer to use the foot and have some control but I have now finished quilting most of it. Just need to do the border....

Thank you Wendy for another fun FNSI....See you again next month..

Happy Stitching

    Lovely rows of hexy's there... I have a feeling you'll work away in your room & get that finished in time for the hanging. x

  11. Those little hexies are so sweet. I feel the same way about my BSR foot. It is hard to get used to using.
