I finished the October blocks true to form… at the end of the month. I think it is the cutting that always slows me down.
This month I broke down and bought the Tri-Rec tools to cut my fabric. The last 54/40 or fight block I made was for a QOV and I wasn’t happy with the outcome. I think I tend to shave material off of my thin plastic or paper templates. Since these angles are a little fussy, I added to my ruler collection.
The great thing about the Tri-Rec tool is that you cut off a small ear on one corner of the triangle that is used to align it to the edge of another. The piecing was very quick.
I find you can never have too many shoes or rulers! 🙂
I need to adjust my seam allowances still. Every block turned out 1/8″ too small. At this point it is better that I am consistent. I will adjust on the next quilt, right?
I like the look of the 8 pointed stars better than the four point bursts. What about you?
