Hexagon Log Cabin Placemat ♪六角形(ヘクサゴン)のログキャビンでミニマット完成♪


Saturday is one of the busiest days of the week for me. There is so much driving involved in just one day to drop off/pick up our girls from their Japanese school, sports activities and other extra curriculum classes! 

毎週土曜日は我が家の娘達それぞれの日本語補習校や、スポーツチームでの活動、習い事などのスケジュールが詰まっていて、私も朝からバタバタです。ご存知のとおり、アメリカではどこへ行くにも親が子供の送り迎えをするので、車であちこち娘達を送迎しているうちにあっ!という間に一日が終わってしまいます。



Yet I'm sew happy that I managed to whip up this fun hexagon shaped log cabin place mat yesterday.

そんな中、昨日の土曜日には娘達の送り迎えや家事の合間に、六角形(ヘクサゴン)のログキャビンパッチワークでミニマットを完成させることができました♪


I've hoarded this charming horse fabric (Wee Wander Summer Ride by Sarah Jane) for a while, hoping that I can make something from this beauty one day...

この爽やかな白馬の生地、何に使おうかな?とずっと迷っていました。



It took some courage to fussy cut the white horse into hexagon shape, using this clear hexagon template. One edge of the hexagon measures 3.25 inches.

お気に入りの生地にはさみを入れるのは勇気がいりますね。今回は、このヘクサゴン型テンプレートを使って中央部分の六角形型を切抜きました。六角形の一辺の長さは約8.3センチです。




My iphone's alarm function is so helpful to manage the drop off/pick up time of our girls schedule throughout the day. I rushed back to my sewing table between my driving schedule to piece this hexagon...

とにかく送り迎えの時間がひっきりなしに続くのと、私はもともと忘れっぽい性格なので^^;携帯電話(iphone)のアラーム機能はとても重宝しています~。



...and managed to finish this place mat done! Yay!

こんなふうに、こまぎれの時間を使って何か作品が仕上がった時は嬉しさひとしおです♪



Log cabin patchwork piecing is so addicting and fun that I can never get over with it!

Happy hexagon log cabin making... Enjoy your week!

ログキャビンのピーシングは楽しくて仕方がありません。作品を作っている間はとにかく夢中になれるのが何より有難いです^^ では皆さんも良い1週間をお過ごしくださいね。

xoxo, Amy

this is so lovely! i, too, have this same fabric that i am hoarding for a special project. but perhaps, i can spare a couple ponies to make placemats for my two girls! i love your fabric combinations! you have quite a gift.

also, i just realized that you authored one of my favorite sewing books! Zakka Handmades has such a unique assortment of sewing projects - i've really enjoyed it. thanks to you, i have now sewn a zipper into something (in this case, a pencil pouch). your instructions were wonderfully easy to follow. thank you for sharing your talents!

It is adorable with beautiful prints and a very cute center! Nice idea to use the hexagon template for cutting. I should try this sometime. Glad you could squeeze some sewing time on a busy day! Have a wonderful week, Amy!
