More Hexagons

Given my fascination with hexagons in quilts, I had to purchase this triangle ruler when I saw Denise demonstrating it to another customer at the Creative Cloth Closet in Canon City. I can picture all kinds of possibilities using this ruler. To start out I dug a set of Christmas fabric fat quarters from my stash and cut out enough triangles to make four place mats. The fabric under the ruler is the one I chose to back the mats.

Here is my progress so far. In order to fit them on my narrow design door, to photograph them, I overlapped the mats. I plan to use fuseable batting to sandwich the mats and then use gold thread satin stitch to embellish the seams and finish the edges. I'll do anything to get away from putting on binding.

Looking great! I too will avoid binding at all costs... ;-)

That's a nifty gadget. Pretty holiday placemats. I'm threatening to do my first quilt this winter but it's 50-50 whether I'll actually get that done, or not. :)

Stopped by to wish you a Merry Christmas! Your amaryllis is lovely.
