But, one of my quilting bees started up again in September--just the kick I needed to get back into what I enjoy and stop thinking about a bunch of jerks. Woohoo for fabric joy!
September's block is called My Blue Heaven and is found over at Quilter's Cache. It's a quick and easy block to make. I cut the squares according to the size given, but rather than cut those in half and sew a bunch of triangles, I just drew a diagonal line corner to corner through the middle of each and then sewed a 1/4 inch from the line on each side, then cut down the line. The block ends up just a smidge over 12 inches, so squares up to 12 even (not 12.5 inches, just so you are aware).
|The block isn't squared up in the photo, but it would square up to 12 inches.|
Glad to be back and I've got lots of fun things to show you, so stay tuned!
