I paper pieced Lark hexagons over time, whenever I was babysitting or sitting around watching something on TV (but usually if I have free time at home I'm at my sewing machine, so that doesn't actually happen all that much!)
I love how the dotted binding (I believe it is Michael Miller's Ta Dot) brings it all together!
Then, I added this pretty turquoise fabric from my stash and practiced some more hand quilting with embroidery floss. I am really pleased with the result! I definitely want to keep incorporating hand quilting into my work - I get better every time.
Now it's all tied up covering my machine, protecting it from any dust/dirt/stink bugs that may inevitably get into the
The quilting makes the second row of hexagons from the top and bottom pop out! I didn't intend for an optical illusion but when I saw that, I decided to stop quilting the middle and work more on the ends.
Ironically, I'm going to get a new sewing machine next month (crossing my fingers) - so I guess I'll have to make anothhhhhher cover... :)
(P.S. Thanks for all the feedback on the wedding clutches - I'm going to go out and get the little safety pins with the flat backs so that my girls can use the flowers on their purses and stuff - I know I want to! I can't wait to show you the wedding pictures in a few months!)
