While helping my friend make sun hats last week, she showed me a pattern and ruler that she had on loan. Thought I'd give it a quick try.
This was made from instructions for the X-block ruler. I made 9-patch blocks, then cut them to form the angled block. I made 10 blocks from the first set of strips, then decided to make another set of 10 and cut them in a mirrored fashion. As you can see, I haven't sewn them together yet! The triangle units on the right were made by sewing the cut-off portions together. I still haven't figured out the border yet.....
This fabric was the one disappointment in internet shopping - the colours were not true on the site. I've been hanging onto it for several years, but finally decided to use it or lose it, and I hate to throw anything away. I'm trying to decide if I want to add another colour into the mix - either green or medium blue. Time will tell!
