New Quilt



A new quilt is in the making.  First you sew three strips of fabric together.


 Cut at a 60 degree angle then cut into strips.


Sew five of the above pieces together in one piece.


Sew a rectangle on to each end.


Trim sides and ends.


Add a pieced triangle to each side of the diamond.


Sew three diamonds together.

 
What will three  hexagon units make????
The finished quilt will be about double this size plus borders.
