I can’t believe it’s been a month already!
Time flies when you’re having fun!!
This month I have Connie be a guest Blogger and show a GO! project also.
She made this cute clam shell pillow!
Have a look at her blog for more pics and info.
The die I wanted to feature this month is the WEDGE!!
A few weeks ago I did a Tutorial Tuesday about Fat Quarters
I had bought this bundle at Connecting threads called spring terrace
and I listened to YOUR votes and tried the wedge.
I was able to get 10 wedges from each FQ (I think)
I didn’t have room on my design wall for all of them so I did it in stages
I had the FAT sides touching be the same wedge, so it offset the pairs on the rows.
Then I sewed 2 and 2 together on just the first row and put them back on the wall
Then did 2 and 2 on the 2nd row and 4 and 4 now on the first now
And continued on, so by the 3rd row it was 2 and 2, then 4 and 4 on the 2nd row and 8 and 8 on the 1st row.
I also ALWAYS add a pin on the block or fabric that’s on the RIGHT of the row, so just in case I get it messed up I remember the pin and usually I have 2 pins on just the top row/right side.
But if you do this method and cut the blocks apart one at a time and iron one at a time, they stay in order.
Here’s the top all done it measures 60 x 71
Now I’m not sure if I should trim it straight or leave it AS IS, the corners are not bad so the binding won’t be that hard to attach.
Isn’t the top fun?
I also finally finished the Bowtie Quilt top and border!
I really like it!
And I have a FINISHED project from last month’s scraps leftover from the apple core quilt I made a mini hexagon quilt and finally quilted it and added the binding.
NOW SURPRISE SURPRISE!!
