Hexagon Clock || Fat Quarter Series


Today is my turn for the Fat Quarter Sewing Series.  Eek!

I really like it when I can combine home decor and sewing on my blog, and especially when it doesn't involve the expected like pillows, curtains, or bedding.

Hexagons, also known as honeycombs, are becoming more popular in home decor these days, but this classic shape has always been used by quilters.



Here are just a few great examples of hexagons being used in spaces.

When Kari asked me to join this Fat Quarter series, I said heck yeah!  Or as my husband would say,"Is a frog's butt water tight?"  She challenged me to come up with a project using only ONE fat quarter.  (I made a scrappy clock too.)

Um, did I mention NO sewing is involved!  Hot diggity doggers for those us who hate y-seams!!  <--ME


I work very hard on producing original, creative projects.  This is for personal use only.  Please link back and give proper credit to owen's olivia if sharing your project on the web or through any social media site.  Thank you.
