Finally! I found time to finish the quilting on my hexagon project that I worked on last summer and fall! I was inspired by Bonnie Hunter's hexie project, although I made 1 inch hexagons. I had begun the quilting before the quilt show, and managed to finish the last of it while I was doing laundry yesterday!!! I still don't have a picture of the full quilt, or the one I finished before - have to commandeer two tall people to hold it for its final photo on a day with little wind!
All the machine quilting was done with Superior Thread's Glitter - a hologram mylar type of thread. I used red (#204), green (#131) and a silvery variegated (#112) for all the quilting. I had a few problems with the thread, usually operator error (stitching too fast). Some days the thread and I behaved better than others. I think that sewing with non-traditional threads is like putting on mascara - its all in the way you hold your mouth!!!!
I hope to get some pictures soon! Now off to make a shopping list of supplies that are needed for the family reunion on Sunday! We expect up to 200+ people, so that means lots of plates, cutlery, napkins, cups etc.!
