Sewing up parts................

I had some equilateral triangles left over from the hexagon star quilt so I cut some more from the scraps and made this piece.  It is about 14.5" tall and 17" wide so it could be a placemat or table centerpiece.



I cut the kite shapes and backgrounds with my die cutting machine last June.  I sewed the quarter blocks at some point since then.  They have been piled up on my cutting table for a long time.  Last night I took the pile of quarter blocks and sewed 18 full blocks.

I would need to make a lot more if I want to make a quilt.  Alternate ideas are table runners or put them in the box with the orphan blocks.

Love what you do.

I love taking the "jumbled bits" as I call the leftover or test blocks and make a really wild scrappy quilt with them. Sometimes, I have to sash sections to make it work - but that just adds to the fun of a scrappy quilt.

Love that little piece you made with the leftover triangles....
I also love those blocks you made from the kite blocks...when I was young (a long, long time ago!), we played a game called "jacks"....these blocks remind me of that game, and how much fun we had....I will be looking forward to seeing what you end up doing with these!

Those kite blocks might make for an interesting round in a medallion quilt...

When I saw your kite blocks I immediately thought of a child's quilt. That's how I used to use up my leftovers.

Oh don't put your kite blocks in the orphan box, they're beautiful and it's such a wonderful pattern for batiks. I think I might peek on the site for the store here in NZ who're agents for Accuquilt and see if they have this die in stock. I have stacks of batiks!!

The triangles made a nice looking hexagon, didn't they! The kite blocks, were easy to make, but I didn't like them after they were done nearly as well as I thought I would. You'll find the perfect way to use yours though, I am positive!

I like your kite blocks. Please do not put them in the orphan box. I know you can make a quilt from them.
