My Winner in the Little Chickadees Giveaway

Congratulations to Kathleen H. of Washington who wins a fat quarter bundle of the Benartex fabrics, My Little Chickadee! I had to select several numbers in the Random Number Generator site because I kept coming up with "anonymous" or "no comment bloggers" with no email addresses! But Kathleen had a way for me to contact her!

It surely was a winner for everyone who enjoyed seeing this sweet collection and also to see how to fussy cut a motif using freezer paper! I've been using this technique for over 20 years and I thank Reynolds for keeping freezer paper on the shelves in the grocery stores!

Christmas in July at Sew in Love with Fabric
 There are still 2 DAYS left in my Windham Fabrics Christmas in July post. If you haven't visited yet, I know you will enjoy seeing how to cut a hexagon - any size - using a standard 60 degree ruler. Plus, a pattern for a neat table runner made with those hexagons. Contest is over Friday, August 5 at midnight (Eastern time USA).

Learn how to cut hexagons with a 60 degree ruler

Christmas in July/August!
I have read every single one of the comments sent in already, and I am so happy with the kind words about this neat trick to cut hexagons. While I don't take credit for the technique (and I honestly can't remember where I learned it, or I would give credit) - it is something that I love to pass on. I was liberated when I realized I didn't need to buy a new hexagon template every time I wanted a different size!

As always, I am very honored that you would visit and want to learn a new tip to make your quilting an enjoyable journey!

  2. The hexagon post is on my list of things to do. Maybe next time there's a calendar girls I don't have time to make. =) Congratulations to Kathleen - a great prize, indeed!
