I was a little weary the last few days- night shift will do that to you. I really wanted to sew, but I didn't trust my tired eyes to any applique that I've been working on.
Whilst looking around Blogland, I found Aunt Reen's Place and noticed that she'd just finished a short Sew-a-Long. It involved a new to me cutting method for hexagon blocks with a 60 degree ruler. Now, I purchased a new ruler a while ago but hadn't had a chance to use it yet. So, win-win for me.
A few bits of a recent fabric club came in very handy.
Strips of background from the fabric resource shelves! Using the new ruler to cut pieces.
Then in half.
Now, we had a little problem here Houston. Somehow I managed to cut some of the pieces a little "wrong"- remember that night shift? Hmmmm, I thought this was a foolproof project-maybe I shouldn't operate sharp objects with not much sleep!
Blocks are made.
This will finish about 32" square- a lovely table topper size. thanks so much for the Sew Along Irene, I came along a little late, but enjoyed finding the project.
A bit of fudging with the shapes, some creative trimming, and I got the blocks about the same size after cutting the hexagons wrong.
Now, borders I think, and maybe I can even machine quilt this one.
