Now on to my Friendship quilt.
It's Raining Hexies Friendship Quilt
I'ts a 15 1/4 x 34 1/4 wall hanging. Instead of showing you a total tutorial of how to put this together, I thought I would instead show you how to keep these thin strip pieces from getting crazy wonky on you. Why? BECAUSE IT HAPPENED TO ME!! see?
Let me back up.
Here are a few details. I made a hexi quilt label. I love the binding fabric I found. I thought it was great to find a fabric print that went so well with all of those solids. And I did Double Stippling by Leah Day for the quilting.
If any of you out there have any suggestions on how to keep strip-piecing from going wonky, Let me know! This is how I did it and I hope it helps somebody out!
the schedule runs Monday through Friday with weekends open for spotlights and recaps.
