    I still have to decide if I am going to square up the edges or try to have the binding with the curves.

    It looks lovely. Just wait till you put on the binding. One tip buy bias binding and sew the front on by machine but the back by hand.

    Maxie, that is sooo pretty. I love the one Anna did with the wavey binding.It just really adds to it. Do you just sew rows of cores then sew the rows together? I'm sure the curves are tricky but fun as you get going.

    Circles certainly count as curves, they always will.

    This is what I've been doing instead of a runner. It's getting late in the game.

    I finished piecing the 2018 Bonnie Hunter Leader/ Ender project. I have 6" teal borders on it now too.

    OK I am going to commit. I love this swap and don't want to sit this one out. I don't do curves or hexies so I think I have come up with a plan that will fall under the requirement of "in any form".

    Here is where I found the pattern I used to get mine started. looking at the pattern picture is deceiving. The quilt is made from 3" triangles. I adjusted my pattern to get around that. It is not a hard pattern to make even though it looks like there are 10,000 triangles. I am going to make another one using all triangles so I can use my smaller scraps.

    After you get to the site, search for the pattern name Color Junction. I think it is $10.00.

    I adjusted the pattern so the "arms" are 3 single pieces, a light, medium and dark, going around the center 3" triangle.

    I cut scrap strips 3" wide and 9 1/2" long at the wide edge and a 60 degree cut on each end to make something that
    looks like a half hexie.

    I'll post a tutorial this weekend of what I am doing with pictures.

    This is such an easy block and it grows real fast.

    What pattern did you order lawsonmugs? I looked and looked and only found the Color Junction pattern. Every other pattern was a kit and I did not want that. I'm trying to use up scraps. LOL

    My machine is going in the repair shop tuesday. Probably get the pattern then. LOL I'm excited to start it. It's all triangles put together. No Y seams.

    I did a practice triangle following the tutorial. That wasn't hard, 1st time doing a y seam. I'm attempting a stained glass panel. using bias binding for the "lead" it seems too wide, any suggestions?

    m-fay they make a 1/4 in sticky backed bias tape for doing stained glass. It's expensive though. about $15 a package and most designs I've seen take 2. Amazon has it. Comes in black,gold and silver. The picture shows the runner I made for this swap last year. It has the gold lam'e bias tape.
