post here, but have put those hexies on hold. (I started it in April of 2012!) I messed up and need to wait until I am settled in my new place and relatively stress free before figuring it out. Meanwhile while I decided to make this a wall hanging. I want to hand quilt around it to make it stand out. The only thing is that I have never done anything like this before. Is there a special way to make it look nice? Should I quilt on the fur also, or just around the cat? I was thinking of maybe just quilting around the ears, body, eye, etc. and then quilting around the flowers and everything else also. I am open to any suggestions or tutorials you might want to share on something like this. I'm so clueless, my husband had to explain to me how to put the hoop on! LOL
I paid $1.50 for the panel at a thrift store, the backing was like a $1, and the hoop was 50 cents at a yard sale! Oh and the batting? It was left over batting that I sewed together to make it wide enough!
I am writing a tutorial on how to spray baste a quilt, I'll try to get it posted tomorrow!
Remember the prayer quilt we made for Kenzie? She has cerebral palsy and participates in the Arkansas Angel pageant every year. This year the pageant is having a fund raiser to help pay for expenses.
