my favorite..the Bonus Twill with adorable Sayings!! I have some suggestions for it below!
AND the block rections, a game, and a 20% off coupon for confetti solids this month! Each month the coupon is different. So you can stock up on what you need, and it makes this present to yourself even more valuable.
With Doing my Splendid Sampler project I am using a lot of smaller units. And I love to over size them, so that I can trim them down perfectly. The tiny square gives me control over that size unit. Above i started with a 2.5" square, which I can line up the diagonal and trim down to a 2" or 1.5" square with precision. It has non slip backing dots under the numbers.
My favorite is the Bonus twill ribbon printed with adorable sayings!!
How can you use it?
Add to your label
On the Splendid Sampler we have several blocks that it could be used in. The Selvege saver, the Quilt shop, or anywhere you want words.
On a pincushion would also be fun!
I attached it by laying it on top of the fabric and top stitching down both sides. Much easier than sewing it in a seam. but you can do that too!

Watch Kimberly demo Part #3..I love how when you cut the extra tips off they line up so nicely..
Next I'll give you a few tips that I discovered..and a use for any extras you might have that don't make it into the final quilt!
These are my test units and I LOVE THEM, but they didn't go into the quilt... so i thought.. what can I do with them?
First.. audition a setting fabric.. I'm loving all Mochi Linen right now... it's so fun to use!
As there were sitting on the fabric it occurred to me I could make an adorable snack mat with just one!
You need a little trick to the setting units..
Cut one large Hexie
Sub cut it in half on the short edge, right at the 2.5" mark just like I show you
Now you are ready to make a snack mat!
Here is what I mean about using the ruler to trim the tip, it makes everything fit together SO WELL!
want to see the finished mat?
Oh my goodness I love this!
After I sewed the sides on i then trimmed the edges straight. You could make it smaller.
Here is what I see.. fun red and white stripe fabric(like this) with a tonal red... red dots or a green dot for setting for peppermint swirl snack mats!! How about Halloween ones (this is cute fabric!) How adorable right? Use leftovers you have to sew up loads of these for friends, i can't wait to hear if you do!
