He is sooo excited but is delaying naming it until I am quilting it... so for now it is THE MAN quilt! lol
I decided while I was making the blocks... 5 across and 6 down... that I would add sashing and cornerstones to this project. I really liked THIS youtube vid to help me through understanding how easiest and accurately to be able to do this as I have never sewn sashing or added cornerstones.
So I started by fussy cutting 42 cornerstones :)
Anyway, I knew I had to fussy cut to a 3 1/2" square for my pattern. I added painters tape around the edged of my 6" square ruler to easily outline where I was to "fussy cut"
After watching the vid I tried her way of measuring larger amounts of fabric (for the sashing)... using my O'Lipfa ruler... the label on it looks like this
It snuggles up to the edge of your cutting board for a T with just a bent under edge... I think I found mine at Overstock for cheap! I have had it a while... This is what it looks like measuring her way...
Now my pattern looks like this...
Whilst I have been working on his quilt... my honey has been decorating our house for Christmas.. have you started decorating... do you decorate at all... are you done and enjoying the season????
Would love to know what YOU are up to this week wherever you are and whatever festivities you may have planned!
