One Chrissy pressie finished … :o)

November 2011 022Ooooh I’ve been having a lovely time with my “Go Baby”!!!
As promised – here’s how I made the cute little hexy table mat…
I used these dies, the 2 1/2” strips, the hexagons and the triangles for hexagons…
I made 10 hexagons and 18 triangles (oops, I probably could have pressed these before I took a pic!!!), and I sewed them together in sets and then rows, as shown below…November 2011 010The little dog ears are already removed so you just have to line them up evenly - one on top of the other …. love it!!!!!! November 2011 013So then I stitched the rows together (Pressed this time … much nicer lol) …November 2011 018 Popped on a border and sandwiched it … November 2011 021 quilted it up……November 2011 022 (2) and voila … one Chrissy Pressie done and dusted in just a morning :o). November 2011 081 Hmmm, now I’m thinking that there are 3 different sizes on the hexy and triangle dies … might have to make some smaller and bigger ones too :o).
You can sign up for the Accuquilt emails if you like and they'll send you 22 free patterns - click here for the link :o).
So how’s your Chrissy stitching coming along??? As usual I’ve left mine til the last minute lol. Must get back to it though, I’ve got some secret santa pressies to finish :o)!!!
