Well, I have been looking at it for over a week now, wondering what I would do with it. During the week, I pulled random fabrics to set around it looking for something wonderful to go with it. I found an old thrift shop red chambray shirt and some bright golden batik in my stash that looked pretty good. Yesterday, I went to a neighbors yard sale and found a couple pairs of corduroy pants I thought might work. Today, I started laying out, cutting, moving around, and finally stitching. Finally, I came up with this pillow top.
The biggest challenge turned out to be an unpleasant experience with melting fabric. Originally, I wanted to use a piece of teal narrow wale corduroy where the light blue is. It was such a beautiful color. It was pretty heavy, and I suspected it was upholstery fabric. I sewed a seam between it and a piece of the red and when I went to press it, the teal melted. It was a very nasty mess. I have never seen anything like it before. Fortunately, I got the iron cleaned. The board cover is in trouble, though, and I may have to replace it, finally. Good thing I have a Joann coupon.
I also made another whirling hexagon. I used the opposite triangles as the spacing pieces to see what it would look like. They give it an interesting look, I think.
I am really liking this pattern. It is so quick and easy. Each block is 13" by 12" finished. I think I will make Tomorrow is another quilty day.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
