New Ruler = more possibilities!

Hello everyone!  I'd like to extend a warm welcome to Lisa Marie, thanks for joining us!

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! 

Enjoy!

  2. That pattern looks really cool - I can't wait to see what it'll turn out like! And your reasoning for your new essential piece of equipment sounds strangely familiar... kind of like when I'm in line waiting to purchase something at a shoe store...

    Haha, just kidding! (Kind of haha)
