Holiday Mood

After feeling under the weather for the last few days, I finally felt like going outside.
Of course, I ended up at JoAnn’s on the pretext that I can walk the outside mall area…which I did.
I found the last bit of fabric I needed to make one more pillow case and one more table runner.
All the seasonal fabric, decorations, and cool weather just got me in the holiday mood.


I couldn’t find any pretty buttons for the ends, so I am thinking of looking for a small silk poinsettia to pin on the ends.

Recently, I started viewing tutorials on quilt as you go hexagons.
In some of these videos,ย  the top and batting are quilted before the backing is placed on.
If it is a 6 inch hexagon, will the backing separate?
The videos I am watching have hexagons that are artistically quilted with silk ribbon embroidery, thread sketching,ย  beading…etc.
What is usually done when doing a quilt as you go hexagon?
Thanks for any suggestions or thoughts you may have on this.
