hexagon? mat for Christmas

Have you ever been distracted because you see something YOU HAVE TO TRY?
I found this on the internet somewhere. you take 4 fat qtrs. and from each one cut 2 pcs 2 1/2 x 20. then you sew them into a "strata" where the first fabric has enough contrast from the last one (ie the red and pinecones in this one) you cut them into triangles of 60 degrees. (I used the lines on my regular ruler) making 3 same triangles of each style.
sew 3 together
sew the halves together
line in flannel. quilt it without batting...bind.......done.
this is just my flimsy but I found the red flannel and I am ready to go. also I can make 2 more of this same combination or combine them with others. how fun is that!

a mug rug I finished. this is in the box .......

My mom made this many years ago. she was crafty too! (she passed in 1989 so you know how old this is?) it looks cute in our place.
Happy Fall and happy sewing..........
