May be out of my league

I recently bought a quilting magazine because I fell in love with something I saw on the front cover. I think that table topper is fabulous.


The thing is, I've done some sewing in the past. I'm no pro but I can manage to get by. I've never done any type of quilting before although I've really wanted to learn. I'm not sure if you would even consider this quilting to be perfectly honest. All I know is I want it and I have to at least give it a try.
So far, this is as far as I've gotten.

Well I do have some other pieces cut out and ready to start on making the individual hexagons. I'm thinking this might have to be a weekend project though. Trying to figure something new out during the week after work probably isn't such a good idea.
Wish me luck

Ann...you have accomplished learning so many new things...not only that you have accomplished them with great skill so I am sure this will be just the same once you get into the swing of things...No luck will really be needed but I am sending it to you anyway!!

It is awesome, Ann. You will have it done in no time at all. Your embroidery skills are great too! Good Luck on the project.

That's cute! It's good to have a challenge! I never could perfect my quilting stitch. It's too big. I enjoy the piecing part but not the quilting part, LOL!

Oh, I love that hexagon table topper! Don't worry, hexagons are easy to sew, and I can see you're off to a great start. Your pumpkin looks wonderful!!

That looks like a massive project - so many steps. As always, I admire your creative abilities...

I saw that issue and LOVE that table topper as well. I know you can do it! It is easier than you think especially if you already know how to sew at least and you do! :) I can not wait to see it done. I love your pumpkin! Just try not to show me up too badly! lol

You are so talented that I have every confidence that it is going to be fabulous. I can't wait to see it.

I can't wait to see the finished product! I was admiring that same magazine cover during a recent trip to JoAnn's. I've never made one like that before but it sure is a pretty table runner.

Marg said...

Now that looks like great fun. I think you are doing great so far. Do not give up. That is a pretty table cover. Good luck. You can do it.

You are going to make a quilt now? Gosh is there anything you can't do? Lovely.

Rose said...

That quilt is gorgeous! So unique and fun. Best of luck with it.

Very cute..I bet yours will be equally as nice if not better. :)

Don't unplug your hub. said...

I think men do quilting too these days. I wouldn't mind having a go myself.

SweetMarie said...

you are so putting me to shame! I'm still working on fall cleaning! Then I have to start getting all the decorations out. It's so hard to believe it's about to be October! I do love that table topper!

Lin said...

This may be harder to do than it seems. It might behoove you to buy a hexagon template...or make a good one.

Let us know how it goes! I'll be anxious to see it done.

Reeni Pisano said...

How pretty! I have no doubt that you can make that!

Sharkbytes said...

That would be some weekend project! I'm not a fast embroiderer. It's very cute, though.

marie said...

I am so impressed...you are so good at just deciding to DO IT! I've noticed that about you so many times. There is no doubt in my mind there you will make one of these and it will be wonderful!!
