I’m busy cleaning from when the wood trim got installed. Read about that in the morning post.
I thought about not doing a post at all but I know that makes many of you sad. So I’m doing a very quilt post. I managed to get two new videos up this past week.
The first is an update to the free-form quilt-making series. In this episode, I tackled making the Churn Dash, Shoo Fly, and Broken Dishes blocks.
I had a little breakdown with my machine but we were able to clip the video together for your viewing. All of these blocks are featured in the center of the quilt. Of course, you can make them without the ABC letters too. Free-form quilting is fun!!
Here is the …video. You can press the triangle play button and watch the video here or you can go to Youtube HERE and save it and watch it later on your television or favorite device.
The other video I got done this week was for my Iowa Hawkeyes quilt. This video features how to use an easy-angle ruler to make half-square triangle blocks. It’s my most used ruler of all time. I’m guessing you likely have one in your drawer and you haven’t learned how to use it. At least that was where I was at one point. Now I use it all of the time.
My quilt isn’t any further along than it was last week…but that’s okay.
I will definitely get back to it as it is only of my favorite projects.
Here is the video. You can press the triangle play button and watch the video here or you can go to Youtube HERE and save it and watch it later on your television or favorite device.
If anyone would like me to do a blog post with pictures of how I use my right-angle ruler, please let me know and I’ll try to do that. I know there are people who love videos and others who prefer blog posts. I’m working hard to help as many of you as I can.
With that, I’m off. I have a busy week. I’m still working on cleaning and organizing and I have rescue dog news to come so watch the blog for posts about dogs…and puppies over the next week.
