Do you ever jump from one project to another?? Ha! I bet that's a loaded question! Well, that's what last week was like for me.
It all began when I decided to make another mini tumbler like this one that I made a few years ago. I copied the paper piecing strips . . .
. . . without realizing that my printer was set at 85% original size. So this piece turned out to be a bit smaller than I expected. I had plenty of 2" squares to play with and got back into the rhythm of paper piecing.
Then I decided to sew together these 5" tumblers which have been sitting in a drawer. They almost look giant! I have some ideas . . .
Back to another mini. The 1-1/2" hsts were staring at me and in no time at all I had another little top together.
And quilted both on the machine. Here are the backs. Each one measures about 10" x 12".
It took me a week of shuffling hexies around to come up with the final layout and this is it. Now it's time to take them off my wall. I printed a photo on letter-size paper to use as a reference so I can start sewing them together :)
Have a great week!
