Another Set of Hexie Blocks from The New Hexagon Perpetual Calendar
|18 diamonds cut for my six Baby Blocks|
Then what's next? I cut 120 degree triangles from my background fabric:
|Oversized 120 degree triangles|
I join two of these odd sized triangles to each of my diamonds. Hey! What's that little dot at the top of that diamond? That's how I will know where to stop stitching when I put all three of these sections together. You'll see.
|Two triangles joined to a single diamond|
Here are the 3 diamonds I selected for one block. Yes, I know. There's a y-seam about to happen. There actually is no other way to stitch this one. But we're going to get back to that little black dot.
|Three sections to my Baby Blocks|
|Stitch from the raw outside edge to the dot|
|Sewing the 3 diamonds just UP TO the marked 1/4" dot. Then you can "spin" the center join|
|Trim, leaving 1/4" seam|
|This is the Baby Blocks upside down|
