While I was trimming, I managed to keep a few of the flowers intact. I plan on making a pillow from this one. I'm almost done with it - will share pics of it when I'm done!
|I found this gorgeous vintage unfinished|
hexie quilt top at an antique mall near my house. It was $40. I'm in LOVE with the aqua background and I could just eat those yummy little red center pieces. I purchased this over a year ago and it's been sitting in my UFO pile begging to be finished. The problem was - I just couldn't decide how to finish it. Should I try and match the aqua fabric and finish out the background in hexies? Or do I just trim it, square it, add a wide border and quilt it?
|In the end I decided to square it and add a border - basically because I'm kinda lazy. I used some vintage fabric that I found in an antique shop in Chicago. I'm not loving it at this stage, but I'm fairly certain that with some quilting and some bright red polka dot binding that this beauty will shine.|
