I have been playing around with some rulers from Quilt in a Day for an event I am holding later this month up in Listowel, at Pins and Needles. I created 2 table runners; one uses 6" flying geese ruler in a zig-zag layout. The 2nd runner uses 6" and 4" flying geese topped with a 3" triangle in a square to build a "tree". I appliqued some stars at the tops of my trees, cut from Honeystone Hill from Blank Textiles, a great metallic blender.
There is a series of rulers available now from Riley Blake. They are; half-hexie, thimble and circle, and each set includes multiple sizes.
Using my 10" half-hexie I made up the Chrsitmas Runner from the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial. Here's the link:
This is a great little project. It goes together very quickly and would be a great Christmas gift for anyone you know.
I am having a great weekend, catching up on all the new projects I have lined up. The first is this easy tote bag from Springs Creative. This comes as a kit, but the straps are completed, the lining has the inner pockets and zipper already sewn in and all the outer fabric is pre-quilted. The instructions say you can complete this in under 2 hours, but honestly mine was done in less than 1 hour. TA DA!
