Gearing up for Winter Solstice Week
Just a few more days and then we get to swing back and gather a minute of sunshine each day again! I really shouldn't complain because we've had a lot of sunshine so far in December (except for the snow yesterday!)
I made this block 3 years ago. It's based on a design from Katja Marek's Hexagon calendar. But I didn't want to English Paper Piece it. I upsized it and rotary cut the patches. Katja's block is 6" high (sort of). My block is 12" high and was pieced very quickly!
I added some borders and here she is! I quilted it on my Handi Quilter Sweet 16. So nice to work on something small.

Here is the schematic I drew up. All patches can be cut using normal rulers; you don't need a specialty template.
I have a few more happy Christmas themed projects to share. I have them strategically placed around my house to remind me that the dark days will soon be past.
