|When my temp finally came down to close to normal. |
The thermometer was my constant companion,
I kept moving around the OBW for distraction, and decided on this.
I had to audition what colors would look good on the sides. I did not want to lop off the ends of the rows. I had put too much work into sewing and arranging them to throw parts out.
Then I decided to be smart and sew the ending triangles on before I sewed the rows. Unlike last OBW when I had to sew sewt in trianles on the sides. When I cut the triangle as normal and sewed it, I found that I would have no seam allowance on the outside edge and the outside points of the hexagons would get cut off. I drew a pattern with the template adding a 1/2" line bigger parallel to the side of the triangle to give some seam allowance.
|First triangle (ripped out) not enough seam allowance. Second triangle has it added.|
|See how I have a good seam allowance so the outside point of the hexagon is not cut off?|
|Rows all sewn|
