Do you ever wake up in the morning with an idea that demands your attention? That happened to me yesterday. So I grabbed this pile of hand dyed fabrics.
And this pattern.
I can hear the collective gasp, yes, I used a pattern! You kind of have to with this ruler. Both are from Jenny Petigo and the team at Sew Kind of Wonderful.
These patterns require sewing and trimming. I had to do more trimming than normal because I cut my corner triangles too big.
I had to use my die cutter somewhere!
I’m not gonna lie, there is a learning curve here (I love puns!). My hand dyed fabric starts out as Kona PFD and it is a bit beefier than regular quilting cotton. I think this made my curves a bit trickier to sew. And I surely need more practice. You can see here that things didn’t always line up as they should!
However, using the same fabric in all the corner triangles disguises this a bit. I didn’t do it for that reason, but it seemed to really help.
Want me to let you in on a dirty little secret?
