The Joys of Hex, Day 7
|Discovered these 40 GFG blocks in a thrift shop in Cape May, NJ|
What did I do? I trimmed them, ironed the raw edges under, machine sewed them into vertical rows onto green background strips, sewed the strips together and I had my quilt! The double bed it now rests on was my parent's bed from the early 1960s, rock maple and was in pristine shape before my youngest daughter put her wet drink glasses all over the edge! Only love saved her from being strung up by her toenails!
Here's a picture of how this appeared in a previous magazine article I did on this quilt, just so you know how I did it. My philosophy is always: Get 'er done!
Now, go take a visit to our last day's bloggers. I have SO ENJOYED my hopping these past few days, haven't you? I have so many ideas . . . so little time. How to get it all done? I know - take a nap and dream about it!
