Another Snow Ahead!



Tonight we are expecting the possibility of  7 to 10 inches of snow tonight. Good sewing weather.

I got the rest of my variable stars done and now I can start the sawtooth stars.

I have a large hexie quilt called science fair started; with only a couple of rows put together. I am going to show this and the ruler called Hex and More ,tomorrow.  The ruler and pattern are by “ Jaybird quilts “  Julie Herman.

This is going to be a king size bed quilt for my son for Christmas. 

Edyta Sitar showed on her blog how to take a hexagon folded in half to make a prairie point.

Fold over one third…

Then fold over the last third and there is your prairie point. 

I had some hexies left over from my scrap quilt and decided to make a scrap diamond project ,maybe a table runner or bed runner. Anyway it will be an on going project.

Hoping the snow never comes I will say goodnight, Martha.
