Be sure to wear green today so you don’t get pinched!!!

Last night I woke up at some time just past This is Ridiculous o’clock. Somehow I had a thought pop into my head and it just wouldn’t go away. The trouble is it was an idea for a new quilt – cause, you know, I don’t have enough projects to work on as it is!!!

After I had a cup of tea and was fairly awake, I just had to try it out. The pattern is called Jack’s Chain. Here is a picture from the internet.

I was just loving this pattern and, because I had made so many little nine patch blocks, I thought this would be a perfect next project. The thought that woke me was trying to figure out the math for the triangles and hexagon. I do not have any idea why this woke me, because it was not a difficult problem.

So I sat down and cut out some triangles and a hexagon. I already had plenty of nine patches. And I started to sew it together.

At the very first “Y” seam, I realized that this will not be a perfect next project. And just like that I no longer have one additional project to add to my list!!!
