The Pointy End

Closer and closer our due date looms, and I am still working on the baby quilt. All hexagons are now pieced and joined. 
Then I "floated" the centre over one large piece of fabric and appliqued the already-turned-under edge onto the red check.
Then I flipped it to the back and cut away the checked fabric leaving a 1/4 inch between the applique edge and the raw edge underneath. Now, the checker is not showing through the vanilla hexies, and I have a beautiful big piece of Flower Milk Sugar fabric to go with the leftover jelly roll pieces. (What to make? Who knows?)

Okay. Now to spray baste, and hand quilt with DMC perle.

We are getting to the Pointy End of this pregnancy, and I want to make sure our Bub has a quilt ready to go (32 weeks now.... oh my!)...

Love your baby quilt and thanks for the tip on cutting away the background so the background doesn't show through--just what i needed to spur me on to finish my Snow Flowers--lotsa white in it...hugs, Julierose
