Howdy Quilters! How are y’all holding up? So far the Triangles chapter has been fun. Block #40 was of course another perfect opportunity for fussy cutting. My sister convinced me to use the black Coal shot cotton as the contrast on this and I’m glad she did because the thin shot cotton is really great for bulky seams like the middle of this block. Have I said this before? I really love the shot cottons. I know I say this a lot too, but this is another block that I can totally plan a whole other quilt based off of. Thanks to Tula for letting us know that cubes don’t always have to involve in-set seams or 60 degree triangles.
Line your fabric up and keep the bottom edge lined up with the tape
using the tape as your guide the entire time
Voila a pretty good way to get a decent straight line without picking up a pencil!
Sara – I wish I had something awesome to tell you about today, like binder organization or tape, but I am honestly lucky that I finished these last night. Too much is going on around here! And I’ve also noticed that my Block 41 is not quite right…but alas! Can’t wait to see your blocks!
So, if you are sewing along at home, be sure to link up ONLY blocks 40, 41, and 42 in this post (you will have time to link up your other blocks in future posts). Please link up separately for each block. As a reminder, you can link to your blog post, Flickr, or wherever else you are hosting your pictures. You must link up here on this post in order to be eligible for the monthy prize, to be awarded on August 31st!
