CUTTING THAT IS!
A while back I decided to pull out all my Kansas Troubles fabric.
Over at Freckled Whimsys blog she was having a charm quilt along.
I liked what I saw, so I used my fabric and cut. 150 charms and 150 more, to make into four patch blocks. Also half square triangles. Well I finished sewing these half square triangles and 4 patch blocks. What do you think happened next. Some finished at 4 1/2 " they other were 4 1/4 ". So the next best thing was to start cutting them all to 4 1/4".
So you know how many I had to cut. Some 300 squares (IT SEEMED LIKE THOUSANDS). Some I had ripped out in frustration then found that I was short. So out came more fabric and more 4 patch blocks were made.
Did I tell you that I started this way back in July. Then I hurt my wrist and it went on the ufo table. About the beginning of November I picked it back up and continued to square them up to 4 1/4 ". Well today I finally finished squaring them up. Here is block one.
24 more to go.
Does this pattern look familiar? Can't wait to finish this quilt for it goes to a family member for Christmas. As I post this I have finished 15 blocks. I think I'm going to love this quilt..
until next time,
