Hexie Tip

Guess what I found under a bunch of scraps.... New fabrics I bought at Creative Quilter in West Duluth Minnesota. She was getting ready for a shop hop, and there wasn't much of either of these on the bolts, so I got mine quick. I intended to come back and do the shop hop, and I would have in the olden days when we made money. Now we live on a fixed income, so ....No Shop Hops.

 The fabric on the left is variegated! A whole yard of different colors in that feather print.

Here's the Hexie Tip I came up with last night.  I was having so much trouble holding the fabric, plastic template and the needle all at once while folding down the ends.... how did I ever do that before?  Then I thought of my clips!  Just right to hold it all folded while I tack the little bugger.  Works for me.  (I don't know what I'm making with them. I just needed a project while watching TV... otherwise I eat.  On the Slimfast diet... I've lost a few pounds, but I'm so hungry....

Have a wonderful week.
