What with teaching folks about quilting I’ve been itching to cut new fabric and do lots of piecing but I didn’t realllly want to start another project. Instead I settled for sashing my polaroid blocks. Since it’s been ages, go check out the history of this project.
Sub-cutting for the win!
From a WOF I can get 44 tiny little matchsticks as I think of them.
Incredibly the math works nearly perfectly! My quilt is 14×16 blocks which totals 224 blocks. Divided by 44 and I get 5 with a remainder of 4. So I need to do five WOF strips (and a few extras).
All the white dots are sticky labels since I don’t want to mix up the different colours in the pluses.
The only hiccup was when I had to pack it all up for kids getting home, dinner and things was that I stacked the sashing in columns and the blocks in rows. Blergh. I had attached 11 before realizing I was an incompetent buffoon (the highest insult you can get in our family). Back under way though!
