Have you been over to the Blogger's Quilt Festival yet? I have entered Summer Evening in a Garden Maze in the applique section. I would love it if you could pop over and give me your vote here
Its the time of the month that we hook up for the Lets Book It Challenge run by Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts
This month, you might remember, I pulled on old magazine out to make this:
My baggy containing pre-cut 4" squares was overflowing obscenely so I wanted to use up some of the green 4" squares.
I got as far as this, without really making a dent on the 4" squares:
And this is where I got stuck. Reason? The original pattern called for 4.5" squares for the centre medallion, and I had used 4" squares. Therefore the medallion was not the right size for the cutting instructions for the triangles to turn the medallion on point. Now I have talked about my nil ability in the maths arena, so it got put into the "too hard" basket.
Looks like I will need to buckle down and finish this project next month.
Now my lovely blogger friends. How do you work out the size of the triangle required when you put something on point?
My usual method is to draw a square the size of the centre block and then draft the triangle. Then measure all the results. But this is way too big to do that, and I don't want to cut a square for the triangles something like 20", only to find that the thing is 1/2" short!
Any tips would be appreciated!!
I can also reveal some secret sewing I did quite a while ago. Both recipients have their gift, so here it is:
Two little crochet hook holders. The one on the right I gave to my daughter as a present for her anniversary. The second on I posted off to my bloggy friend M.K. Her poor hubby had a fairly bad bike accident and she was feeling stressed & upset. I thought she might like something to cheer her up.
Linking this up to Lets Book It.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching
