    Hexagon-star templates/pattern

    Chairjogger - here is the hexagon star format... Cut a 60 degree diamond any size you decide to work with... assemble yur six pointed star in 6 diamonds of all-same-fabric-purple, for instance, and then add six background diamonds to finish the block... i howed different shades of grey so you could see the separate *blocks* but you might want to use all white or ivory backgrounds, or all black, whatever... sheeps

    Thanks for the grid... I am going to give it a try for only 1 block for now, I am hand sewing the binding on placemats now.

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    I kinda like the idea myself.... You know if you had a six layer stack and whack pile of fabric, you could whack out stacks of matching diamonds... they could get inventive...

    If you only had enough repeats for THREE layers, you could whack out identical *stacks of three diamonds* from your strips, then alternate with another stack of carefully chosen inbetween diamonds... this could be fun... LOL Sheeps
