First of all I must thank our wonderful cheer leader Debby and of course lovely Madame Samm, who are conducting this adventure.
In our neighbor country Denmark many quilters love to sew by hand and always the English way over papers, but it has never been a common technique among the Swedish quilters until now, when sewing over hexies has been common in the quilt world.
When the local quilt guild, Öresundsquiltarna, started 2003, the BOM of the year was a hexie quilt with stars inside the hexies. And all have to be sewn by hand over paper.As you by now know what type of person I am, I couldn´t resist trying to test this too. We were at the start about 60 members who were in this BOM, but I haven´t seen more than 10 finished projects during the passing ten years.
I have quite forgotten my handmade quilt until today, and I then took it out from the shelves, as my quilt is one of the finished projects. The quilt has more than 12 blocks, as I from the start had planned to make a small quilt.
When I looked at it today I must say that I am proud, as it is finished, all sewn by hand and hand quilted. And I think it is lovely too, even if I shouldn´t have chosen those fabrics today.
