In my last post I was all “look at me, look at the fabric I made, I’m so awesome, here’s my block.”
And then I remembered the lesson of measure twice, cut once.
I forgot I had to cut the cool fabric vertically instead of horizontally! Good thing I had so much more cool than warm. I was able to cut enough blocks from the “leftovers” and I only had to piece together a couple of blocks. Pretty easy to do with a quilt pattern like this. I also decided that I didn’t need to make a 96″x96″ quilt. Yeah, I had enough fabric for one that big.
My past two weeks have been a joyous time, rough cutting rectangles diagonally, piecing them, and trimming up. Here is my quilt, all 72″x96″. I’ve even found a backing for it. Now I need to quilt it and give it a name. I’m looking for suggestions for both.
W. offered up this gem a couple of days ago which pleased me to no end: “wow, there’s blue diamonds in there too! Did you do that on purpose?” Yes small child, I did.
