|Lisa's "Mini Northern Lights" detail. Pattern by JayBird Quilts.|
PMQG Treasurer Lisa here. At February’s SewDown I was introduced to Julie Hermand and her amazing rulers. I had so much fun with the class that I bought one of her Mini Hex N’ More rulers to play with. The ruler cuts three different shapes in four different sizes, and while the resulting patterns looks complex, the ruler is surprisingly simple and easy to use.
|first you cut ...|
As an example, I made a mini-quilt from Jaybird Quilts’ “Mini Northern Lights” pattern. I love how complex the piecing looks, yet the way the pieces sew together in Julie’s clever patterns is very simple and easy to master.
|...then you sew! Easy!|
I used a mix of different designers’ fabrics and some solids. Next time, using this kind of pattern I would likely use all solids, so the pattern really pops.
|Et voila! So cute!|
At the April guild meeting, one lucky person will win three patterns from JayBird Quilts, the “Mini Hex N’ More” ruler and the Jaybird charm pack of cotton solids from Kona in the Jaybird Quilts’ “Night Sky Palette.”
|All this could be yours ...|
