Hello all! It been a few days since my last post but I have been so busy! We had two birthday parties and a busy long weekend.
I saw a cute little clutch pattern in this month's Quilts and More magazine that used 2" squares and I just fell in love with it! You all know how much I love my 2" square ;-) They are such a great way to use up scraps and get a cute project from pretty much nothing. Well this little darling fits my Kindle perfectly! I made up one using some scraps from my Red-work Granny's Stars quilt that I am still piecing. Working on that quilt just makes me smile so I thought that a little Kindle case would too - I was right! I also made up another one, just in case, out of scraps.
After buying the magazine I went on the All People Quilt website and guess what? The little pattern is up for free LOL! If you would like to make your own clutch you can find it here.
If you want to try your hand at making the hexagons there are many tutorials on the web for making them. Just try Googling hexagon quilt tutorial! There are lots! I didn't like using paper for my templates though - I found it slipped. So, that's why I chose the plastic instead. Either method works.
the story of the sampler here if you like ;-) It really has had quite the journey! This quilt is now back on our bad and I smile every time I look at it.
Tonight is our quilt guild meeting night - it's Tools and Gadgets night and I can't wait! It's one of my favorite nights of the guild year. I'm going to be demoing my Accuquilt Go! cutter and I am really looking forward to it. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow. Does your quilt guild do a Tools and Gadgets night?
Happy Quilting all!
