Well this section of Handful of Scraps is finished! now to decide what I will do with the border. I have enough border fabric for wide borders and will make chains of hexie flowers or hexies to go all the way around – to be determined on what it will look like.
the background fabric – this fabric was actually used for some of the neutral colors – I had a quarter yard or half yard something like that and then a couple months ago started to search for any of the neutral colors that I had and luckily I found several and picked this one out – I have about 8 yards I believe so I will be able to have this finish as queen size – the center will be appliqued in place and then decide from there – most likely a chain of some sort to go all the way around about 10 inches or so out from the center design.
a close up – I think the top little hexie is the same as this piece just pointing a different direction. Linking to My Quilt Infatuation today.
Well all the storm warnings were on TV last night I was quilting on the Postage Stamp quilt – I do not like how the weatherman drone on for hours about all the warnings but they were in our area so I had it on. One tornado was on the ground north of us so we heard sirens go off twice – but knew from the tv that it was not in our direct area. We planned on staying up late until we knew the storms were past and as I wrote this at 8:20 last night we could hear thunder in the distance but on the map it looked like all was winding down and we had missed the most of it once again.
