Sneak Peek for a Wednesday Tutorial

Wings Collection by Benartex
Come back on Wednesday (after 9:30 am Eastern time) and see what I did with this delightful collection. There will be a tutorial at the Benartex blog, Sew in Love with Fabric. But in the meantime, this is what I did with some of the leftovers.

This traditional block is a Pinwheel and the inspiration came from The New Hexagon book by Katja Marek. I decided I didn't want to English Paper Piece this, but upsized it for rotary cutting. The block is 9" high and with the borders it finishes to 11-1/2". This will become a Mug Rug.

See you on Wednesday!
