After much deliberation I finally decided to make up diamonds with my hexagons & set about working out how far my jelly roll would go. Wanting to make a fair sized quilt I felt it would be safer to get an extra one, you know, just in case......
As you can see from the above photo showing the back of the work, I'm no longer basting the fabric through the paper template but running the thread through & over the corner sections to secure it. This way the basting cotton remains on the back of the work, the templates pop out & you don't need to spend hours unpicking all this thread which will not show on the completed top.
This is the top almost complete as I just need to add a couple more rows of black hexagons to each end, then it's done. I have no idea how I am going to quilt this........any ideas anyone?
