Let me tell you a story if you are sitting comfortably!
Once upon a time a long long time ago this quilt started life in Lynne and Gayle's Hexalong. But then I decided I didn't like it after just a few hexagons.
Then I took it out again and tried some more interesting blocks inspired by the hexalong posts and by Helen's much more peaceful quilt top.
I actually began to like it but didn't know how to set it
I thought of this
But Alison said I should try something less safe - you know what ? She was right.
So in true Oscar night style I would like to thank Lynne and Gayle for inspiration, Helen for inspiration and endless encouragement and Alison for the spur to be daring! This quilt wouldn't have been the same without you - now I have to go and dry my eyes - want a tissue?
Edit: Adding link to the tutorial I used on binding an inside edge for that crisp zigzag finish !
