|January 13 block from the calendar using Kaffe Fassett fabrics|
|January 13 block using Sgrafito fabrics from Benartex|
First, the parts as shown in the Benartex block:
|Two triangles, two diamonds and four half-hexagons|
|Sew two triangles together|
|Adding one half-hexagon to the bottom triangle|
|Second half-hexagon sewn to bottom triangle|
|Adding the last half-hexagons and diamonds|
Then, in a show of how much of a renegade I am (because these are NOT EPP - English Paper Pieced), I chose to add setting triangles to each of the six blocks instead of appliqueing each block to a huge background triangle. Saves a lot of fabric, btw.
|Simple triangles added to 3 sides of the hexagon block|
|January wreath of six January 13 blocks. Mine is a bit larger at 18" tall.|
Hope you enjoyed the show! I loved working with these fabrics and the ease of stitching using my rotary cutter. The size of my blocks is only slightly larger (by about 1/4").
