For the last 6 months I have had this Pinwheel/Kaleidescope kind of quilt in my head. I found a design on EQ and decided I would make it on the machine. There are rotary cutting and template sizing, and I have this new Creative Grid Ruler, that I thought would do the trick for me. I cut out a heap of blocks, and sewed 2 together, before I realised that the size is "not quite" right. The ruler must have slipped a few times, or I moved it, or some other things happened, and they were all sent to the "naughty box".
You would think that would settle it, but I still had the idea in my head, so today, I cut out the templates for the blocks, and plan to hand piece. I unpicked the pieces, and will mark them all up with pencil and this will be my "carry along" project for the next few months. So far I have cut enough for 20 12" blocks.
Creative Grid Ruler. You put the top marker on one side of the fabric, and the 7" line on the other side, and cut along the two sides.
I still need a machine project and have another thing in my mind. I am suppose to be working on next years Mystery Quilt......well at least thinking up ideas, so that Mary and I can see how it might work. Ever since we finished the November Mystery last week, we are already planning for next year.....finding photos and emailing to each other. Something will come up soon enough for us to get it all knocked together.
Before the end of next week I will have the last part of the Pom Pom Tree Block of the Month ready for you, and then the next Past Reflections applique block. My DH is going away for a week and I get all the free time to myself. Wonders will happen!!
