I have previously posted the work on the Red Hot Garden Quilt and I am putting on the border now. I have noticed a flaw in my technique that isn't horrible, but I think it is worth keeping an eye on. When I sew my hexagons together, I whip stitch and pick up 2 or 3 threads on each hexagon.When sewing the side that goes with the grain of the fabric, I noticed that I was seeing gaps in my hexagons. I looked at it and when sewing with the grain, I was picking up the same threads and I was making a hole kind of like a snag. I tried to take some pictures, but they wouldn't show up. I learned that when you sew the hexies together, always pick up threads in different rows so you don't snag the fabric.
I love looking at the One Flower Wednesday pictures. They are very inspirational and lovely to see the progress. A big thank you to Karen for running the program even though her flowers are done. I can't wait to see the flowers for this week.
