I am relatively new to quilting, started 7 years ago. My latest project is a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. So far I have completed 62 flowers that are 12" each that I have sewn together with a row of solid white hexagons between each flower.
Now my dilemma, what should I do to finish the sides. Should I do a bias binding around each hexagon? This sounds hard to me!!! I noticed some people add several rows of white hexagons then use a ruler to square the four side off.
I have also seen some use an insert of fabric along all four corners blocking off the hexagons. I cannot understand how this is done. I am making this quilt for my grandson but will also be entering it in my guilds quilt show in March of 2013.
The second questions is how to quilt it. A local quilt show that has a long arm said I should hand quilt it. What are your thoughts???
