Serendipity Sunday–Interlocking

Because I have already worked through one of Jennie Rayment’s books, there is bound to be a fair amount of repetition.  So today’s chapter on Interlocking Shapes went fairly quickly because I skipped through sections like squares, triangles, and hexagons.  (Click on the highlighted words to see the original posts.)


I did, however, try this version of interlocking hexagons.  Here one corner of each hexagon has been opened into a trumpet shape.  Those edges are loose now, but I think I’ll try some additional tweaking before the whole thing gets stitched down.  Just not sure what yet!

One thing I had not tried before was interlocking rectangles.


Since it is not an equilateral shape there was a little mental gymnastics involved to have these interlock correctly.   So I did more than one!


After studying this four-patch, I think I want to try a slightly different combination.  But not today.  I can handle only so much “mental gymnastics” in one day! 

Speaking of my mental capacity – or lack thereof – you MIGHT have noticed that I spaced on doing a Wednesday WOW post this week.  Apparently my brain was on vacation!  Anyway, here is the picture you should have gotten on Wednesday:


I’ve been pairing and putting edges on the samples I did from the Fabric Embellishing book I did last year.  My goodness, that was a lot of embellishment!  I plan to stitch them together like a book.  Still a few to go before I can show you a finished project, though.  If you’re just joining us and want to see what I’m talking about, go here to see the first post, or click on “fabric embellishing” under “Labels”.  There’s lots!

Hopefully, I’ll be back on track this week.  Providing my brain gets back on time!

Yeah, right. Well, my excuse is now that I'm Blonde and I'm a Senior. But I NEVER had your mental capacity to start with! I wish (again) we lived closer so I could come and watch you ;-)
