…and then I couldn’t decide what should be the front and what should be the back! I ended up making this the back:
I used every single scrap I had so far from Julie’s Hexagon Quilt-Along and followed Elizabeth’s tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew. I ripped out seams in my jelly roll strips and cut them in half lengthwise, to end with ¾” finished strips.
Since I don’t yet have a Kona color card, it was immensely helpful that coordinating solids were already picked out for me on the Robert Kaufman website. I bought a yard each of Pomegranate, Peridot, Lagoon and Tangerine for a steal from Handcock’s of Paducah, leaving me plenty left over for the Hexagon Quilt-Along.
To make the “back” of the potholders, I had to make a spiderweb block ½” bigger than on the front, then cut it into quarters and sew it back together. I traced out shapes on paper and cut and taped them together to double-check my measurements so I wouldn’t waste the fabric — but boy did I end up recycling a lot of paper!
With four days left before the half-way check in on Spring to Finish, I’m feeling pretty good about it!
What are you working on this week?
