borders done and dusted!

After some telephoning yesterday Lyn's needlework no longer had the glace fabric I needed, they had forgotten to take it off their website. Bummer!
I thought I would try where I had bought the previous glace dessert roll, Jemimas. I thought I had bought the last one but they had another one! Lucky me. I zipped round after work and picked it up. I couldn't wait till after tea to cut and sew the borders on. Now it just needs to be quilted. I have backing and wadding to do this so that is the next job on my list.
I also started the binding for my Tisket Tasket quilt that I finished quilting on the weekend. That should be done this week. Woo Hoo!

I also had to finish some hexie flowers for my swap partner this month. She likes modern fabrics, which I must admit are not fabrics I use or would know to buy so I hope these will look modern enough. I couldn't resist fussy cutting the hexagons in the pattern. I think I need to make myself some for my scrappy garden.
Have a lovely week.

They look awfully modern to me. I have the same problem - my bits and pieces are very conservative looking. I particularly like the way you've done the darker hexie. Very clever the effect of matching up those stripes. Looks great.

The quilt looks wonderful! Love the fussy cut hexagons. Hexagons are still on my to-do list. Lol, I'll have to stop planning and start doing I think!

So glad you managed to get the fabric after all. I can imagine how frustrated you must have been. It is looking great.

As for the hexie flowers, they are super - the design is very cleverly put together.

Yay for fabric hiding in the shop.
Your Tis the Season looks fabulous in those colours.
Well done on getting the quilting finished on your tisket quilt - look forward to seeing that one completed.
