I finished basting all the new hexies as anticipated. I now have 112 more little hexies for my Baby Hexie Quilt. I will be getting back to piecing today once I finish quilting my class project, which will be a pillow :)
Here's a shot of the pinwheel. I did mark out the stippling, but changed it in a few places while quilting to make it flow more.
Here is a shot of the back with just the pinwheel done. You can see the pattern and stitches a little better. Not perfect, but not too bad for my first time, if I don't say so myself ;)
And here is the first background triangle. I had marked these for stippling as well, but changed my mind. Instead of remarking, I used a Zentangle approach to do echoing triangles.
And a shot of the back. I have two more background triangles done now (both much more consistent). I plan to finish the quilting today, so that I can show it off tomorrow at the shop when I go for Quilting for Kids (a charity project in San Antonio making quilts for cancer patients that are children. It starts at 10a if you are interested in joining :)). After that I'm going to finish the pillow and focus on the Baby Hexie Quilt as much as possible. I HAVE to have it done my October!
