A bit of "Taking Care of Business"
On July 1 Google Reader will cease to
exist, so if you follow this blog on Google
Reader we will no longer be connected.
I took the advice of other bloggers and
went to www.bloglovin.com and just clicked
a button to switch to that site and I get to
keep all the blogs I follow very easily.
Then I added Bloglovin to my favorites
list so I can easily access them. I hope you
will do the same or something similar so
we can easily stay connected. Thanks ~ Ellen
We are quilting along with Barbara Brackman's
Block of the Week, Grandmother's Choice.
This week I made the block according to the
given directions even though I am triangularly
challenged. I could have made this with half
square triangles but you would not have been
able to fussy cut. My block is wibbly-wobbly
but it is finished!!! Did you hear my screams
all the way in Australia?
Sew a Fabric A small square to opposite sides
of the Fabric D fussy cut square. Press seams
to the outside.
Sew Fabric A small triangles to the remaining
sides of the Fabric D fussy cut square, press
seams to the outside. Square to 4 1/8''.
Sew a Fabric B small triangle to each side
of a Fabric C large triangle as shown, press
seams to the outside. Trim dog ears.
Sew a Fabric A large triangle to the top of the
unit we just made as shown. Press seam to the
Fabric A triangle. Do this to all 4 units.
Sew 2 small Fabric A triangles to the above
unit as shown, press seams to the outside.
Trim dog ears. Make 2 of this unit.
Sew 2 of the above units to the center diamond
in a square unit. Press seams to the outside.
This is the center diagonal unit.
Sew the 2 remaining triangle units to each side
of the center diagonal unit, matching seams.
Press to within an inch of its life ~ with starch!
Square to 8 1/2''.
