Here is my pieced borders quilt top. I used (gasp!) an old white sheet. Its the first time I've used a sheet in a quilt.
Then my mom pulls out this quilt that she started 30 plus years ago, when she was still single. Seem similar?? Kinda weird!!
Except her version makes mine look pretty simplified. Each side of the hexagon has to be lined up and sewn individually. Thats pretty much the reason why this project is still unfinished. (And mine is NOT! ha ha.) The fabrics are scraps from jackets, dresses, and various things she had made. She also used a white sheet. This is authentic vintage fabric people! :)
She's had all the pieces cut out and ready to go. I helped by sewing in 3 hexagons and then I'd had enough. She has made it a goal to add 1 hexagon a day in the hopes to finish it in a year! Good luck Mom--We are going to hold you to it!
And this is what it looks like outside today. This picture actually does not do justice to the howling wind and swirling blinding snow going on out there. We are currently under a blizzard warning.
