Do you like to square up a quilt? Well, I DO NOT !!!
I really jut like to put the borders on and get it finished
so I can hold it up and go...
awwwwwww...it is finished.
Here are some hints/pointers/rules
that others have discovered
that I find helpful.
First I love my 6" X 12" ruler.
I find common measurements for the block,
like 1/4", 1/2" or 1" etc
and make sure that I am holding the ruler on that mark
on the left side of the square
then cutting on the right side(of the ruler)
any excess fabric needed to be cut.
I used some blue painters tape to place on the ruler here
to help me see better, since the fabric was so light in this spot.
However, I need some new tape...it kept on tearing off in pieces.
After all four sides are square OR
add top and bottom border
and square again...
and the same for the two side borders...
Top with out borders
and then square up the whole top...oh my...this is too much...but necessary.
Make any sense?
Oh yea...the snow.
Well, we are suppose to get some light snow
here in eastern NC over night.
So, will be inside quilting away.
I am really glad about getting another hard freeze for gardening
purposes since we have not had many.
Hoping to plan carrot, turnip, beet and radish
seeds in a week or two.
