This past week was half-term around here and to keep myself busy between day trips and the like, I got started on this strippy hexagon quilt. I haven’t done one before, but after saving tutorials on how to make one I thought it was high time that I get on with it! :o)
To get myself started I did a little planning on EQ7 and worked out that with 42 strips I could make a decent 40ish x 45ish quilt centre. I probably will add some borders once it is all together, but I will worry about that later.
You could cut out the triangles using a standard rotary ruler, but as it happens I have this 60 degree ruler that did the job perfectly. I bought this ruler in the depths on Ontario about 15 years ago and knew it would come in handy one day!
I only have 1/2 of it together so far, but I’m really pleased at how well it is coming together. All my points are matching and I’m loving how these soft colours are playing nicely together.
I have been waiting for a nice day to get some pictures taken and this morning didn’t disappoint. Even my Cath Kidston pin cushion looks good in this light! :o)
Right, time to get back to the sewing machine!
Until next time...♥
