    Some of my intersections were weak and close to the edge of pulling apart...this is to keep it strong and to keep the batting from bearding out too

    It is really beautiful. But it is also lots of work, especially your hand sewing.
    Enjoy it.

    Just Beautiful... I like the little tip on using the pellon for extra support of the seams.

    What a beautiful quilt. I am just stating mine and have enjoyed watching yours progress. How long have you been working on your quilt? I will be at mine for a long time because I plan to do it while watching tv in the evening. It should keep me from wanting to snack which will help me not to get any heavier than I am now and maybe I could drop a few pounds.
    Congratulations on a wonderful quilt and be sure to show us the finished product.

    It is pretty. I see a lot of quilts and fabric with quarter on it. What is that for?

    Just lovely and I too did not know of using pellon. :) I know you have a lot of work ahead of you yet with the hand quilting :) It will be a masterpiece once finished.

    Your quilt is so very pretty. I am piecing a GFG, which is actually a UFO from many years ago. Hope I can keep it going this time.
    Have you used pellon before? and do you think it will make it harder to quilt?
    I have found I have to watch those edges very carefully when I am first starting a new hex. They seems to scoot, so I have started pinning them in the center. Even then they tend to move.

    I have been working on this since September 2010. It started as a car project from scraps from my niece's quilt. I wanted to learn the process, but it grew and grew and then turned into what it is today. It then turned into a stuck-at-the-hospital on-call project. Then...I had emergency back surgery a few weeks ago and I was told to sit and don't move. I am more mobile now, but still being very careful!! I can't sit at my machine yet, but hoping to try that come Monday =D Now for the hand quilting on this project...

    Really pretty! I agree, it is light and fresh. I like the contrast of the light pink with all the brights...
