SELVAGED TREASURES

Can't wait to post here the outcome of the hexagon treasures that I found about a few months back. After few trials I finally decide that I should distribute the flowers evenly because there are not enough flowers with the same fabrics or design, and it looked scattered and very busy.

Although in the first place I thought I could maintain its original design... I just could not get a satisfaction for not distributing it even and wisely... I used up all the flowers and add up 2 sets more to make it into this single quilt top.

Anyway here goes the almost done piece.... yet to add the edges which was half way through. Very much hope that I can get it complete the soonest as promised......!

Maria, it is good news! Now you are getting closer to us quilters... Well, the main features you must have is the straight and ziz-zag stitches.. the most basic ones. Be sure to have a written guaranty on your good purchased. Happy stitching!
