Don’t let this quilt scare you from trying it – the 4 patches are 1-1/2” squares and that’s not too small. Bonnie uses her own Essential Triangle Tool and it’s a huge help. You can cut half square triangles and quarter cut triangles from one strip! I’m not a notions fan – I still use my 6”x 12” Salem Ruler and a 45mm Olfa cutter. I did buy Bonnie’s Triangle Tool and it’s a timesaver!
Since I changed the big triangle from a string triangle to a solid I think I am allowed to tell you it’s an over cut 8” square cut once diagonally. After the block is pieced and these triangles are added, they are trimmed to size. (And why didn’t I use this block in the quilt you ask? I found it after the quilt was already assembled and quilted!!!)
Because I have a deep respect for copyright laws I cannot/will not give all the measurements here. I am going to start another one in this book – just because I love all the piecing! And I have all these 4 patches left! Ha! I went crazy making 4 patch blocks!
And here are a few of the projects in my head – bear with me.
Two reader quilts
Sandi in New Zealand sent this picture of Stella and Luna who are visiting family in Taiwan – this robot circles the restaurant and you put your dirty dishes on it!!!
Today is Hazel’s 7th birthday! We tried to take her picture this morning with her Happy Birthday headband but by the looks of it, you’d think I had just beaten her!
Oh, for cryin out loud, Hazel!
This looks more like her – in the barn.
I let her celebrate with her favorite toy – she can’t be bothered with eating, unlike her mother who baked cookies at Rick’s request.
And believe it or not, I got a perm this afternoon!!!!
We’re under a blizzard warning tonight and tomorrow – ugh. Can it be as bad as the warnings? I guess we’ll see.
This was a lot tonight – but still pretty much about nothing.
