The stars for the middle side panel are aligned and have been stitched together to the red border for my Birds in the Loft hexagon quilt. This isn't the clearest of pictures and the colours look flat but you get the idea of how it looks. I love the scrapiness of the various reds!
Once the star strip and red pieced border were stitched together I added them to the section of hexagon rosettes that will go on either side of the centre panel. Here you can see it attached to the left centre section of the quilt. I plan to applique the red pieced border to a strip of red fabric. I've got scraps that are 2 5/8" (leftovers from the "made fabric") so I'll sew them together to be used for the border to create the straight edge.
I am super happy with how the border looks against the quilt; the assorted red scraps I used just glow. There are all sorts of reds from deep blue reds, to purple-reds, orange-reds, fuchsia-reds and barn red just to name a few!
Here you can see the top border pinned to the fence. It is still in progress and there are more pieces to be added. Did I mention that this quilt will be big? I'm also stitching together the rosettes that this border will surround and am almost done!
That's it for today. I'm all fired up and itching to sew, sew, sew because the end is in sight! Until I post again, happy sewing!
p.s. I'm linking up with Sarah Did It HeLP for Hexie-aholics. If you followed my Value Proposition Hexagon Quilt Along you can see the progress Sarah is making on her quilt in that post! It is gorgeous!
