(Look he is trying to hide, lol)
I always had a lot of fun over the next few Holidays with my kids. (Actually, I always had a lot of fun with my kids) But now that they are all grown....guess I have to make my own fun, :)
I got a new pattern and a new tool at the Paducah Quilt show this past April. (The Lil twister)
I finally had the chance to make this quilt and try my ruler out.
As you can see, I made lots of 3 inch squares, carefully sewing them together here the pattern suggested.
Here, as above you can see how I cut with my Lil Twister Tool. (Which was a 2 inch square)
The tricky part, which really wasn't tricky, I just had to be careful. Alter each row was cut, your turned them to the right and sewed them together. After a few rows I could see the pattern and felt more at ease. I was afraid I was going to get them mixed up and not notice it, until it would be too late. I was in visioning a lot of ripping.
For now it will do, but I am going to use this tool again, that's for sure! It was too much fun. (I just loved these colors too.)
For now I am too busy. I got some ideas as to what I am making for the next hop.
Wendy and Madame Samm are brewing up a doozy this time.
