My Mrs Holder Reproduction Quilt is progressing well.
Row 16 is on - it has 90 stretched hexagons using 8 different fabrics.
I have used a traditional Cook Island Postage Stamp technique
to keep my hexies in order. I chose the order, laid them
out around the quilt to check that it would work and then
threaded them onto a long piece of embroidery
thread - all six strands.
Just put a knot on the starting end of the thread so you can easily
pull one hexie at a time of the other end as you need it.
I had fun raiding my stash of 1800s reproduction fabrics for this row.
Next comes a brown row - also more scrappy.
