New Projects

The pattern for this quilt is called Science Fair by Jaybird Designs.  They also have designed the ruler Hex n'More which was a pleasure to use, once I remembered to use the correct end of the ruler!  I was cutting the gray background half hexies lickity split.  Then I started cutting the strip sets for the colored hexies and realized that I wasn't cutting triangles, I was still cutting half hexies!  The triangle part of the ruler was on the other end!  Of course I didn't have enough fabric for another strip set.  That's why some of the hexies are different.  But, I think it adds some interest!  Maybe a happy mistake?

These blocks are called Star Fusion.  Our Guild brought in Janna, from Bloc-Loc for a class on how to use her ruler to make Half Square Rectangles.  this is not how the blocks will go together, there will be pieced sashing that will make a secondary star, but I wanted to see what would happen without the sashing.  I love the new bright colors and solids!

Seems like this post is more about rulers than anything else.  I confess....I am a ruler and gadget junkie!

It will be interesting to see how the secondary pattern shows through.
