A lovely day yesterday :-)
I came back to working on the Aunt Grace's Flowers jelly roll, and made up strips for 9 patch blocks, and a random alternating-with-white quilt.
I tried to explain my time saving method last time, and certainly confused Hadley, so here it is again with pictures!
Pick up a strip of white, and a strip from the jelly roll. Cut 8 inches off the end of both.
Trim the two triple pieces each into three triple strips each at 2.5". Now you have enough to make two nine patch blocks, one with white corners, one with coloured corners
Clear as mud?
Anyway, new topic - shopping!!!
I want to start a hand sewing project in grey and red for the sofa, and decided to do log cabin using foundation by the yard. Good plan, but f-b-t-y log cabin doesn't exist, and I really didn't fancy drawing out each foundation block by hand, so I have switched to court house steps. The foundation fabric arrived today, along with (well if I was paying P&P I might as well add some more stuff???) some f-b-t-y flying geese for the Fun With Fabric course, and a cutting board that I have been lusting after - one that turns, so it's much easier to always cut away from me.
