Directional Fabrics

can bite me.

In a quilt with sixty-four unique print fabrics quite a few of them are directional. Since I’m strip piecing much of this project I was having some troubles training my brain to deal with those directional prints.

I took the time this morning to make a mock-up block:


Yes, this is wee but I can now clearly see how things get spun around and put upside down and sideways. I can’t recall where this not-so-awesome fish fabric came from but now I have less of it.

This wee block helped me make this terrific poster so that I’ll never get it wrong again.


I will probably make a different mistake instead.
