Last week I mentioned that I was working on a special job for the weekend. The following photos are what I did. One of the members of our group started hand piecing a hexagon quilt about 10 years ago. It was almost finished and only needed the edges to be done. This lady is undergoing treatment for some serious health issues and is not able to finish her quilt. Another member offered to finish the hand work on the quilt, and last weekend it was time for the quilting. Another member made the binding with leftover pieces of the colours in the quilt. And another lady has now taken it home to bind.
It seems to have been the year for hexagon quilts, as I have quilted about 5 this year, all hand pieced.
This lady is so pleased to see her work being finished, but also quite humbled. It was a pleasure to do this for her, and just maybe, someday, someone will finish one of my quilts. It is a scary thought to think that I might not be able to sew one day.
