The Virtual Refrigerator

Welcome to The Virtual Refrigerator.  This is the last week to join the theme for May -- FLOWERS. Don't worry if you don't follow our theme you can still join us. 

This week geometry and art collided. My daughters and I have been learning English Paper Piecing with our dear sewing ladies, and I have been attempting to perfect an acrylic pattern piece so next time we can quickly cut our own precisely sized hexagon pieces with a rotary cutter. For this project, precut squares were included in our kit. Heather has been taking a computer graphics class and teaching me shortcuts which finally made 6 equal lines equal a hexagon that is the same no matter which way it is turned. Isn't this fabric lovely? It is a 1930's reproduction by Aunt Grace. 

Our weekly blog hop is co-hosted by Every Bed of RosesHomeschool Coffee Break, and a Glimpse of our Life. Link up your art tutorials or projects that your children have been working on. Then pin the same to our virtual fridge by joining our group pinterest board, just ask any of us to add you. Join us at the blogs of any of the four bloggers who are hosting the Virtual Refrigerator. Link up, visit others who join us, try something new, then come back and share that, too. We want to see your child's masterpiece on our #VirtualFridge

  1. Very nice job!! I learned English paper piecing from a lady at church a couple of years ago, and I don't think I got quite that far in my project. It's such a neat craft though.

    1. The girls both completed their projects and one wants to make a quilt like it but with bigger hexagons. I'm still working on mine when we are in the van for a few hours at a time.
