Cut them into 2 1/2" strips, sew them together, grab a 60 degree ruler and start cutting like so
Turn the ruler upside down and start cutting again
And you will end up with
Keep cutting as above until you have 6 triangles. Then arrange the pieces alternatively, sew together, sandwich and pin ready for quilting. (I kept cutting until I had 12 pieces)
Bind them - which is what I did last night during FNSI - and you will end up with two of these hot mats. They are being donated to the local hospital auxilary for their fund raising stall next month. If they sell more will be made in the future.
Don't forget to hop on over to Wendy's blog to see what the others achieved during FNSI.
I need to get back to my scrap bag challenge tablerunner and finish it off - it is my nominated OMG for June and also due for "show and tell" in 3 weeks time.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
