Two or three together would be lovely for a table setting..
The first time I made this block, I cut my own template and made little marks so that I was able to line up the template and exact six matching triangles.
Sew three together, set aside, and repeat.
Before sewing the two halves together, connect the center points with a pin.
Cut six strips, each a few inches longer than the width of one triangle. The width you cut your border strips is up to you! Mine are 1.5" x 9".
Attach the first strip to one side and trim.
Sandwich top with backing and batting, and quilt as desired.
I cut binding fabric 2 1/8" wide for this fabric, and needed 56". Attach using your preferred method. If you have never bound hexie-corners, you may find it easier than expected! Just stop each side the usual 1/4" from edge, and adjust/finesse the miter after wrapping the binding over the edge.
The first mini tree skirt I made was with an orphan block leftover from my Figgy Swirl quilt in 2012.
I sold it to a buyer in Eastern Canada and kind of regret it(!)
Well, Now I would like to make another and pattern it. I am not sure what the best software is for writing patterns, but I know I do not own it. Any suggestions?
Visit Sew and Sow Farm for inspiration this weekend, and if you have a tip or tutorial be sure and link up! Last month, I won a Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate! Perfect timing for all their fab-sales too - what a beautiful bundle I received!
