Monday morning came and went. I had a fresh new day to myself and was eager to cut into my new Christmas fabrics. On Friday I finished Christmas Runner #1 and I was ready for #2.
I had a plan. Equilateral triangles and Christmas trees were on my mind. But since I have never pieced triangles before, I resisted the urge to cut the pretties and went back to the uglies - just in case.
And it was a good thing too.
Because the plan wasn't behaving and I ended up just sewing them into these rows and adding some patchwork squares. Ta, da!
Plan B: When Plan A failed, I went into a completely different direction. Of course, I choose to work with another shape I have no experience with. The Hexagon!
Two of my new fabrics were telling me they needed a fussy cut plan. I am taking on machine sewn hexagons using the tutorial by Jacquie of Tall Grass Prairie Studio here.
I am not sure how large my version is going to be.
But please.... Wish me luck!
Only 84 big sleeps to go now!
Keep On Quilting On!
