This post is about different things hence title! I could have made a new post for each item, but hey life is too short for that malarkey in my view, so here you go a mixed post.
Yesterday I was searching for a piece of fabric I needed for some little 4″ squares for a quilt I have started to make, searched high and low and managed to find the perfect one. I had about 3/4yd, they said I need 1 yard but as I am making it slightly smaller I hope to get away with this amount I have. So, I get it out flat and measure the 4″ and run the rotary cutter up the edge, grr blunt, try again, no no good put new blade in Janet. So did that, pick the fabric up, now see where I went wrong can you?? Folded it straight and cut the strips 4″ then across 4″. ARGHHHHHHH, look what happened, OK it is only three squares but as I am already down on the fabric required I am really hoping I shall be alright.
The quilt is going to take me some time to do so you will have to wait and see if I get away with it.
NEXT….Do you ever join your wadding? I am such an old scrooge you know, I do, any reasonable size piece gets the ‘join up’ treatment from me, then I use these for small items I do, NOT a Quilt I have to say… It is strong enough and quite honestly too expensive to be throwing away. These pieces will be used for some more Graffiti pieces I am going to do very soon
These fabrics have been pressed and pinned up ready for my Graffiti quilting.
So with one thing and another I am going to be busy busy busy. I love Quilting.
