    hand quilted half hex quilt

    this is the little quilt I just finished. I used the half hexagon template and scraps from other projects, white muslin for the backing.

        Very nice! I have never attempted anything like this. Did you do it by hand?

          That is way too cool - I'm like Martha . . . did you hand quilt?

            Thank you for all your kind comments.

            The hexes were sewn on my machine. i hand quilted about 1/4 inch inside each seam then marked the scalloped border. i learned to hand quilt many years ago but haven't done a lot in recent years due to carpel tunnel issues. i've found my hands bother me less if I don't use a hoop but you really have to baste well so there is no shifting.

                        Love those cute pastel colours and you've done such a good job hand-quilting it. Those templates always seem to make gorgeous quilts
