FINISHED-ON-FRIDAY (WK 24)


What I thought was going to be a quick little hand-pieced project turned out to be far more fussy that I had anticipated.  The pincushion top was hand pieced and hand quilted while watching TV in the evenings.  I was almost ready to call it Finished on Saturday; however, I pushed it and actually finished it up at my Thursday night quilt guild meeting.
 


But,  didn't it turn out cute? I found the pattern in one of the recent quilt magazines on Bags, Pillows and Pincushions. The designer is Penelope Tucker. I have been avoiding the increasingly popular English Paper Piecing hexagons.  Not because I don't like them.  More, that I am afraid of getting hooked on them.  I keep seeing more and more uses for these hexagons, other that Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts.  Perhaps I will tackle a few more "small" hexagon projects.  Have a great weekend and

Quilt happy,

Marilyn

It looks wonderful. I will never work with paper pieced hexagons but admire people who do. They are way too fiddly for me.
