Putting 2 blocks side by side..

Tuesday, June 5, 2018


This block is all done.. ironed, cut, sew..... I forgot to mention in my last blog that I bought a turntable cutting mat.  If you look at the block now, it is sitting on the turntable.  With this turntable mat, it is fast and easy to cut diagonals and verticals!! Worth it if you have lots of projects with this kind of cutting style!

Cut half vertically and then half again horizontally.  A lot of cutting and pressing and sewing after this!!  But it's fun watching how the pattern come together.

Then just swap the light n dark solid print around. Do that for the other 3 half triangle blocks...

This is a very easy pattern.  All we need to do is to sew the dark and light fabrics right sides together around the 4 edges of the 10 x 10 fabrics.  Then cut diagonally both ways.

Half and half


I was watching the tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Company and it seemed easy enough a quilt to make using layer cakes.

Actually, I have two sets of the same layer cake fabric which I had intended to make a king size quilt.  Thinking somebody's birthday is around the corner, I decided to make a blanket out of one set of the layer cake.

The other plain colour fabric, I chose a printed creamy colour from my fabric stash..:-)

I finished quilting this quilt and passed it to my sister.  She did the binding and added a label which I embroidered too.

I can't remember if I have a picture of the embroidery label... need to do a search in the photo gallery!!

After ditch quilting, I decided that the blocks look very plain so I just added some quilting on it...

For the sashing, I did feather quilting... and also the outer border bigger  feather quilting.....hahhahahah
