Monday Morning Star Count - Connecting the Dots

I’m making this up as I go along and hoping it all works out. First I laid out the number of hexagons I think I need in the shape I think I need.


I stitched the whole lot together.
 

I wanted to quilt it with thin batting and a backing fabric, but it was too small for my regular quilt hoop and too thick for my embroidery hoop, plus I still had paper templates in the outside row of hexagons.
 

I managed to get some quilt lines in, and am now ready to start putting it together!  Come back next week!

  9. They're beautiful. I hand quilt also and have had some projects that are too small for my hoop. When that happens, I stitch muslin strips of whatever width needed to the sides of the projects. That makes it large enough to put in a hoop and quilt. Afterwards I just pick out the stitches to the strips. Oh, and you don't have to use muslin, just any old fabric will do!
