Last week, I went to my LQS and picked up some brown, sage green and pink reproduction civil war prints for my latest project. I had almost made it out the door when I spotted a roll of fabric I just had to look at. Any guesses as to what kind of fabric this was? Yup, they're florals, and they had a decidedly old-fashioned look to them, so I just had to add them to my collection. I'm sure there's a support group somewhere for people like me....wait a second, they do, I think they're called guilds...hahaha.
Anyway, the label attached to the fabric said I would receive a free pattern with purchase, so I hightailed it up to the cash register, eager to get my 'free' pattern. I've been itching to do a string spider web quilt, so when I saw this....
I knew I had to have it. Hexagons! Yoohoo! A new shape and technique for me. However, in order to make the quilt, I needed one, teeny, tiny, little thing to help me....
A new ruler. So that's how I wound up with this
shiny new toy essential piece of equipment and a whole bunch of new possibilities for my quilts!
