ON THE EDGE IN HEXAGONIA

I’ve spent the week since last we chatted (lol), figuring out how to fill in my edges in  and with what fabrics.  Finally–ta-da–I saw the Light (house…hahaha). (DH collects them…)

On this side and its opposite I filled in with black/tan prints–can you see them????
 so that the serrated edge is even….
AND

On this side in front  I used this field of flowers print that I found (rather ransacked) out of  my stash…they are only pinned as I am in the process of sewing them all in after cutting and papering them–four sides each–takes a while and I don’t want to turn them the wrong way either…(so, lots of “ouch!” being heard as I get pricked while sewing.  )Keeps me awake in the evenings when I sew…

and here is something really pretty:  my two Christmas Cacti –both in the same pot getting ready to put on their show–a bit early–but it’s been SO GREY here that I am happy to see that color blazing.

Last evening my DH retired early as he has thrown his back out moving our ride-on lawn mower into its winter resting place–and I went into my room and cut more freezer papers and ironed them onto more blue lagoon batik hexies to add somehow…this is really all so “by the seat of my pants” sewing.  BUT I am so enjoying it. ;–))))

I hope you all had or are having a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday….

  3. I like that tan zig-zag edge! What a great idea!

    The tan zig-zag worked out beautifully and so did the flower print. Have you thought of appliqueing the piece to a background? Just a thought. Love your CC!
