Here is a pic of the outside (navy) and the lining (yellow). I used my walking foot to quilt straight lines. The first line I sewed was wobbly because I thought I could do it WITHOUT any guidance. Ha! But I was too lazy to walk to the basement and get my marking chalk. I instead cut 2" wide pieces of freezer paper, ironed them in place, and used those as my stitching guides. And it worked!

|Isn't this awesome?|
Wait! Wait! I made something else with the Aria Collection. As you know, I've been sewing various hexagon blocks from Katja Marek's New Hexagon Perpetual Calendar.

|I selected these 3 fat quarters from the Aria Collection|
Then I cut 2" strips of each fabric. The navy was then trimmed at a 60 degree angle on the left side and I recut the strip into 2" segments/diamonds using my regular acrylic ruler: 6 diamonds
I used my 60 degree triangle ruler to cut 2" high triangles: 6 of the light print and 6 of the peach print.

Sewed a triangle to two sides of the diamonds. Notice that there will NOT be a single y-seam in there!
