Test Block

Today I dusted off my recently purchased specialty ruler and tested it out.

I dug out my ugly fabric fabric no longer in favor with the queen and tried it out.

I need a little more practice to get the points to come together more precisely.

Bottom line is that I really liked doing this, and it is easy. I watched the videos on how to use the ruler and how to piece the blocks and how to square them. Because the curve is so big, you really don’t need pins.  I think my problem when sewing came towards the end of the curve; the quarter-inch seams grew.

Next I need to make two, baby girl quilts. Found a book called Fat Quarter Baby: 20 Crib Quilts for Bundles of Joy!
There are ten quilts for girls and ten quilts for boys. That ought to keep my interest.

Mike’s family came to visit over the weekend. My sister-in-law brought her latest quilt top for me to quilt. So that makes two for me to quilt now.

Finally, I started this flag block and will add some more embellishment to it.
