Finishing The Unfinished

In my last post I published a few photos of The Never-Ending quilt blocks which had been abandoned years ago and that just needed a tiny bit of stitching to be finished and I promised to publish them again this week completed.  Well here they are:





I´m just not at all motivated to finish this quilt and had to give myself a good talking to the other evening before I reluctantly picked up my needle and thread.  Luckily at that same moment I received an encouraging comment from a blogger buddy which sparked my dwindling enthusiasm. So to continue with this self imposed method of finishing the unfinished, here are four more uncompleted blocks which I will show finished next week.


These hexies need sewing down or do they?  Would they look better just as they are?



Two more designs by Bronwyn Hayes without the stitched surround.

Look at all these horrible threads everywhere.........


The rest of the blocks are really finished although I might do a bit of embroidery on some of the seams.  Here are a few more finished blocks.





Now I will have to start thinking about the borders, the filling and the backing fabrics

All the bits I least like doing.  Until next week.

  3. So pretty, Sheryl! My first impression re: the hexies is NOT to sew them down, because they are so dimensional (but will they be more likely to get damaged?) The lace bits are so lovely, too :)
