With Heidi's help, I am motivated to accomplish One Monthly Goal and I succeeded this month's goal.
My huge hexagon quilt is now completed. My goal was to add the two light diamonds missing and to attached the last row of green diamonds.
It is so big that the clothesline is not high enough anymore, even with the first row folded on the line.
When I started this quilt, I had no idea how to finish a hexagon quilt. As I attached the diamonds, I also attached a navy blue hexi to finish the sides evenly. I thought it would be nice.
At the top, I added a row of half diamonds and a strip of the same navy blue. Now, I hate it! Thanks to so many wonderful hexagon bloggers, I now know how to finish my quilt beautifully. So I will remove all these half diamonds and navy blue hexies and applique the quilt to a border, like it should be.
Sorry but you are not done seeing this project on my blog. lol
While I deconstruct the sides, I will think about my August goal. Which one would be a good project to work on? So many choices!
I won some hexagon templates from Angie at A Quilting Reader's Garden for Christmas in July. (They came in a lovely Christmas Card. Too cute!) I have to put the templates to good use, right? Oh! sooooo many choices!
